Modern Track Machines

Delhi, Dec 26: Indian Ministry of Railway shares the video of Modern Track Machines that are used by Railways in track maintenance. These machines help in saving time while ensuring a high standard of work.

Modern methods of track maintenance employ track machines and other modern track equipment for the maintenance of tracks as opposed to the traditional methods of manual packing.

The methods used generally are the following:

(a)  Mechanized maintenance of track with the help of track machines

(b) Measured shovel packing (MSP)

(c)  Directed track maintenance (DTM), which is maintenance based on need, particularly if DTM is done by MSP.
