MoW Team 2 working on the NECR - Close-up of spiker head

Close-up of the spiker working. 3 man team, one for each rail and a third loading spikes into the feeder rails.

A claw holds tie to rail and then the machine just pushed the spike into the tie, with as much visable effort as you would show pushing a sharp needle into an ripe bananna.
