RT-41 - Tie Tamper Car (1993-date)

RT-41 is used to tamp ballast between the rails, and so can be seen on those sections of the TTC subway which still use wooden ties and ballast when those sections need maintenance. This vehicle was built by Plasser American and acquired new by the TTC in 1993. In this shot, taken by James Bow on July 17, 2014, RT-41 has finished a job at one end of Vincent Yard and is pulling into the tunnel at the yard's western end.
