Specific Item Information: In 1971, Plasser and Theurer launched the 07 series of the Gleissopfmaschine. The modern machine concept for the ever-increasing fast-track distances and the ever-shorter train pauses. Leveling, straightening and tamping machine in one. This track-laying machine has been used in many countries, including DB and private companies.

Model 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 but have no lighting.

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 History:
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.

Road Name History:
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.

It also gained ownership of former railway assets in West Berlin held by the Verwaltung des ehemaligen Reichsbahnvermögens (Administration of the Former Reichsbahn Assets).
