Abstract: This paper gives a diagram of significance and advancement of automation of Indian railroad track support and different kinds of packing machines with their particular capacities which are utilized by Indian rail route for track upkeep. Railroad, being more secure and conservative, has been a favored mode for transportation of travelers and products. For long, the support of tracks were done physically, which was man power riched and tedious as well as had other specialist impediments of trouble in dealing with heavier track structure, constrained work window because of higher recurrence of trains, wellbeing of track upkeep faculty, and unpredictable nature of yield among others. Toward the beginning of automation Indian railroad imported the rail packing machine from plasser and theurer which is an Austrian organization. It is the main organization on the planet that gives a scope of packing machines for support of railroad tracks. At first the attention was solely on machines for track laying, track upkeep and estimating work. During the 1980s the range was reached out to incorporate machines for the establishment and support of overhead lines. From most recent couple of years Indian railroad is chipping away at indigenization of packing machines. For making indigenous machines railroad utilize figuring out system .based on sort of the rail line track (straight track, Curved track and point and intersection track) the packing machine is fabricated.
