En stoppemaskine…

Som nybagt sekretær har jeg nu fået adgang til vores ibk-mailboks og der kommer usædvanligt meget spam – men der ankommer nu også forskellige, sjove info og salgsmails. I dag ankom så denne mail fra CFG Railway products. De sælger denne lille stoppemaskine, som jeg ikke helt kunne stå for 🙂

Dear Mrs or Sir,

We are building new small tamping machine for narrow gauge railway. See datasheet attached.

We are able to supply light machine for track maintenance.

We are also making repairs on narrow gauge diesel locomotive.

Our tamping machine BR-100 is now certified by the french national railway SNCF for narrow gauge…

Den kan godt nok ikke måle sig mod vores egen luxusudgave af en stoppemaskine med sæde og egen fremdrift, men fin er den da. Se de tre salgsvideoer her:

    Greeting from France. For what it's worth, the second video is when the Rillé Railway members went to Pithiviers last year to help maintaing their track (I am the guy with yellow trousers).
    We went there again last week for a new tamping session, but this time the machine was not rental but a brand new purchase of our society !
    The one you see on the video is with one central press and two guides, the one we bought is the new version with two press as guides.
    Some of the improvements we recommended last time are now implemented, and we are already planning to add extra features of our own.
    If you consider to get such machine, just know you just have to change the chassis to fit different gauges, the tamping units are independant.
    Caution: difficult to get back to the Jackson system after trying this 😉
    Best regards,
