This is Plasser & Theurer VKR 05E tamper No. 74108 ‘stored’ at Wittersham Road on the Kent and East Sussex Railway 

This machine is an early 1960’s Plasser & Theurer VKR 05-E tamper DX74108. Apparently the tamping tines should vibrate with the ideal frequency of exactly 35 Hz. This directional, linear vibration combined with the non-synchronous tine movement produces a homogeneously compacted ballast

I don’t know much more about the machine . Sorry

Anyone else ?
