KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN MAKES TIE RENEWALS WITH SMALL MACHINE

To an increasing extent, tie renewals are being made on the Kansas City Southern with a relatively small machine, known as the Section Gang Machine, which can be moved to and from the track by a few men. The number of attachments designed to increase the versatility now include the tie renewer, spike hammer, spike puller, lag screw bolter, tie drill and concrete breaker. Ease of handling, versatility of attachments and convenience of transporting it give the Section Gang Machine a good performance rating by KCS.
