VIBRATOR ASSURES LENGTH ADJUSTMENTS IN LONG RAILS

Machine developed by Union Pacific is designed to vibrate rail strings while they are being laid to facilitate changes in length in response to being heated or cooled. The vibrator is a track-mounted machine which has two rail vibrators, one for each rail, which are independent of each other. In each case the vibration is created by an eccentrically counterbalanced shaft in a hydraulic motor.
