A machine known as TieMaster was designed and manufactured to reduce labor and costs in sleeper renewal operations. It is track-mounted and can be operated without fouling traffic on adjacent tracks. Its primary functions are to remove old sleepers and place new ones in position in the track after clearing away sufficient ballast for this purpose. The actual changing of the sleepers is stated to consume only 30 sec. and requires only one operator and two labourers.
