MoW: Dynamic Stabilization and Consolidation

The Plasser American PTS-90 pictured below does stabilization and consolidation. It is an older version of a Plasser&Theurer DGS 90N. This is part of one of two track teams that BNSF unloaded the evening before. Unfortunately, since it was after dark, I did not take my camera that evening. The other track team had an even older model. If I had my camera, I would have pushed the ISO and taken a picture because even a silhouette would have been interesting. It had a huge steel frame with rounded corners at the top. Doug Gilchrist answered my question on my posting about the unit on the right. It is a "one pass [ballast] regulator broom only." Luc Ouellette-Vachon Double broom option.

Below is a more modern version.

[It looks like a KSP 2000 without the ballast processing parts. That is, it has just the "two stabilizing units."]

Not enough Brandt pictures on here lol. Here, I have a Plasser double broom that was lowboyed and unloaded away from the stabilizer it attaches to. We had to spin it on a wye, too.
