Track work in the 1:1 scale world

Germany is doing a major project to rehab its ICE high-speed lines -- which have, of course, had ongoing spot maintenance.

Here's a page of interesting photos -- from the site of heavy track machinery manufacturer Plasser & Theurer (many of whose machines are available as scale models from Viessmann and Kibri):

Some of these machines -- actually entire trains of machines -- are really huge.

    Ernest:

    I think Liliput and Kibri offer some of these machines to re-create such scene.
