Download the PDF document attached in Re #1366636-3. It is a "Hanbook of 3 phase Locomotive". You can find all details about WAP 5, WAP 7 and WAG 9 from this PDF Document. There is 103 pages in total in this document. It is all about 3 Phasers.
Presently I am learning this document and try to explore 3 Phasers in more detailed way.
Thanks for your views.
