Principal machine in the new Plasser and Theurer's 07 series is the Mainliner Duomatic 07 to 32, combining leveling, tamping, lining and consolidating functions in one unit. Machine is specially designed for moving quickly between work sites, having a heavy truck-mounted chassis and normal drawgear. Two adjacent ties can be tamped at once. Full automation can be achieved by the addition of a cybernetic control system consisting of an electronic counter, an angle pace-setter and a rail fastening pulsator for determining tie spacing.
