Tie replacement machine

Post by Glenn Brooks » Thu Jun 17, 2021 3:31 am

Hello All,

Hawaiian Railway Society is restoring this old automated tie replacement machine, and attempting to identify the original manufacturer and model.

We are in need of a service manual and electrical diagram to figure out what parts of the wiring system are missing.

Please let me know,if it looks familiar, or where we might look to identify make and model.

Thanks much,
Glenn

you might direct your question to RYPN. They are more likely to have information on prototype equipment. http://www.rypn.org/forums/viewforum.php?f=1
