Tie replacement along Hwy 20

May 15th, 2012

Putting in new green ties along the Sweet Home branch

The pieces of equipment pictured here are a TKO (yellow) and a hyrail excavator (it sits and runs on the railroad tracks). The TKO pulls out old ties from underneath the railroad and inserts new ties in two simple steps. The excavator can grasp, lift and strategically place up to five ties at a time.
