Long Description:
Modern track maintenance equipment can perform all necessary operations needed to keep mainline trackage in tip-top shape with a minimum of disruption to normal rail operations.

One piece of equipment is designed to handle all ballasting operations from adding new ballast to tamping ballast around newly laid ties or retamping existing ballast to restore stability of the roadbed.

The other piece of equipment handles all operations related to the track and ties. In an almost entirely automated sequence of operations it can remove spikes and fishplates, remove old ties, insert new ties, replace fishplates and spikes and even replace sections of rail.
