Railroad M.O.W. Question

Unread post by conrail7695 »

Not picking on any specific railroad, but does any one know of what other types of work gangs railroads use besides rail and tie & surfacing ?
THANKS M. SHIREY

The big ones would be:

Wood Tie
Concrete Tie
Rail
Curve - rail, but only in curves/isolated spots
Surf & Line
Undercutter
Bridge Replacement
Bridge Decking
Signal Replacement

And sometimes more specialized ones like crossing surface or turnout replacement are out there, too.
