HOW AUTOMATED TRACK-LINING AND RAISING SYSTEMS WORK...1-THE JACKSON SYSTEM

Each automated production tamper has its own system for determining the errors that exist in track line and surface and of converting this information into signals to devices that make necessary corrections in track geometry. In this first of a series, the Jackson Railroad Equipment Co. system is described. Corrections in both surface and alignment are made through use of light beams, sensors and electrically controlled servo valves that actuate the flow of oil to hydraulic cylinders.
