The lead vehicle is extracting spikes from the old creosote ties being replaced and is followed by a rail lifter that enables the crew to replace the tie plates which separate the rail from the ties. In the rear, the tie inserter makes its second and final run on the track, where it alternately replaces the remaining old ties with new environmentally-friendly composite plastic ties.
