Harsco Rail’s New Track Construction (NTC) machine installs new track on a previously prepared roadbed in a continuous operation. The NTC lays 1.5 km of track per day, improving productivity, safety, efficiency, and quality. The NTC works with concrete, pre-plated wood, or steel ties and provides efficient and effective means to laying new track.
The NTC unit is supported at one end by a specially modified flatcar running on the newly laid track and at the other end, by a non-powered crawler running on the roadbed. The truss frame contains a conveyor system for carrying the crossties down to the tie laying mechanism which places the crossties on
the roadbed at a precise and predetermined spacing.
Prior to being positioned on the roadbed, cushioning pads are placed on the ties to cushion the effect of steel rails on concrete ties. The entire consist is pulled by a crawler-type auxiliary power unit.
