  1. LOL I'm not an employee...just a volunteer (even though I have a few friends that are employees though). Anyway yes I have taken apart traction motors, but only DC ones, and mostly old stuff like a GE 714 which would be under an R9 for example. Taking them apart is not easy, as even an individual field coil (if you're familiar with DC motor theory) can weigh more than a hundred pounds, and the armature (which you'd be required to take out to really make much progress) can weigh more than a thousand pounds. Unless you have the resources of a legitimate subway shop, hoists/cranes are your friend :D However it's very difficult to do, and almost always should never be done by one person alone.
