Geismar Modern Track Machinery Inc.: Model DN-80 Adzer

Geismar Modern Track Machinery Inc.

The Model DN-80 corrects wide gauge problems. By cutting a strip in the tie on the gauge side of the tie plate, the rail can be moved to the correct gauge and re-spiked. Other uses include the installation of larger tie plates, shimming, and the removal of wheel marks from derailments. The carrier allows the ties to be adzed on the field or gauge side.
