FOWC with Fandango: Giant

I have no idea what this machine’s purpose is, but repair works were being done at the local railway and this was being used. Never give up. I put the No. into Wikipedia (B40 UM-2) and found it. It is a temping machine?

“A tamping machine or ballast tamper, informally simply a tamper, is a self-propelled, rail-mounted machine used to pack 8or tamp) the track ballast under railway tracks  to make the tracks and roadbed more durable and level”. And now we know what it is.
