Briefly described is a track maintenance machine which uses cutting heads to recontour rail, a supplement to grinding as a method of prolonging the life of rail. The Plasser machine processes both rails simultaneously with a combination of machining and grinding reducing the cycle time appreciably. By restoring rail head contour, further damage through shelling and irregular wheel action is avoided.
