Question

Hey guys,

 

I'm wondering if anyone here has pics of number 726 Hedge Cutter. I've found just one picture on the internet: Irish Rail 726 at Banteer.

 

The photographer mentions that this has been modified 'in-house' by CIE to a hedge cutter. What was it before? Any clues from the under carriage? Or any similar machines used in the UK?

 

Any help appreciated. Would love to scratch-build this unique machine.

Regards,

 

Dave

It was originally a tamping machine-before being converted to a hedge cutter,

It's not in use anymore as IE prefer to use outside contractors that have road/rail machines with hedge cutting attachments instead.
