Body Style Information: Factory assembled and decorated, with non-operating ballast tamper mechanisms, these models are motorized and unlit.
Prototype Information: As they travel, trains generate enormous forces that will eventually change track geometry, which compromises both safety and ride comfort.
To overcome this eventuality, the Austrian firm, Plasser & Theurer, developed its line of mechanized, hydraulic, measuring, track laying and railway maintenance of way leveling, lifting, lining and tamping machines.
Designed to produce stable road bed, using a squeezing movement, ballast tamping machines such as the Plasser & Theurer Mainliner Universal 07-16 utilize vibrating tamping tines to pack ballast underneath existing ties or sleepers.
Viewable here, Plasser & Theurer has produced a fascinating promotional video of one of the firm's Dynamic Tamping Express 09-4X railway maintenance machines in action.
Additional information can be garnered from the official Plasser & Theurer website.
