Body Style Information: Maintenance of Way Plasser & Theurer Duomatic 07-32 Multiple Tie Ballast Tamper. Factory assembled and decorated, with non-operating ballast tamper mechanisms, these models are motorized and unlit.

Although the German firm Lemke has partnered with Kato to produce European train models under the brand name Hobbytrain, the N-Scale Plasser & Theurer Duomatic 07-32 Ballast Tampers were not manufactured by Kato.

Prototype Information: As they travel, trains generate enormous forces that will eventually change track geometry, which compromises both safety and ride comfort. To overcome this eventuality, the Austrian firm, Plasser & Theurer, developed its line of mechanized, hydraulic, measuring, track laying and railway maintenance of way leveling, lifting, lining and tamping machines.

Designed to produce stable road bed, using a squeezing movement, ballast tamping machines such as the Plasser & Theurer Duomatic, 07-32 utilize vibrating tamping tines to pack ballast underneath existing ties or sleepers.

Viewable here, Plasser & Theurer has produced a fascinating promotional video of one of the firm's Dynamic Tamping Express 09-4X railway maintenance machines in action.

Additional information can be garnered from the official Plasser & Theurer website.

Road/Company Information:
Deutsche Bahn AG (abbreviated as DB, DB AG or DBAG) is a German railway company. Headquartered in Berlin, it is a private joint-stock company (AG), with the Federal Republic of Germany being its single shareholder. Deutsche Bahn describes itself as the second-largest transport company in the world, after the German postal and logistics company Deutsche Post / DHL, and is the largest railway operator and infrastructure owner in Europe. It carries about two billion passengers each year.

Deutsche Bahn (literally "German Railway" in German) came into existence in 1994 as the successor to the former state railways of Germany, the Deutsche Bundesbahn ("German Federal Railway") of West Germany and the Deutsche Reichsbahn ("German Empire Railway") of East Germany. It also gained ownership of former railway assets in West Berlin held by the Verwaltung des ehemaligen Reichsbahnvermögens (Administration of the Former Reichsbahn Assets).
