LT118 Traction Motors

Few companies have as long an association with London Underground as Brush Traction, which built a number of carriages for what would eventually become the Central and Northern Lines in the 1900s, when it was still known as Brush Electrical Engineering.

More than 100 years later, Brush Traction, now part of the Wabtec Corporation, was asked to put its expertise to good use once again, having been given contract 04/53010 to overhaul and repair approximately 1,400 LT118 types C and E traction engines used to power the fleet of trains on Piccadilly Line in 2006.

The LT118 Traction Motor is one of Brush’s well-known products, having first been manufactured in the 1970s and subsequently redesigned by the company in the early 1990’s to become the LT118 types C and E.

The contract commenced in August 2012 and the motors were to be overhauled to Specification TL/EO.11.01.01 in order to extend the service life of the fleet to at least 2026. This was in conjunction with a policy that required individual motors should be capable of remaining in continuous service for up to 8 calendar years before overhaul.
