Reflective safety materials. The Union Pacific Railroad's M-19 Diesel Shop. Chicago Illinois USA. October 2006.

The evening sun was setting in the city of Chicago Illinois USA, and another beautiful Autum day was coming to a close in 2006.
I spotted this line up of Union Pacific diesel locomotives, on the ready tracks at the company's M-19 Diesel Locomotive Shops.
Seen here is an example of the Union Pacific's use of red reflective materials used for the frame stripe , cab side numbers -and corporate name, wich for some reason or another, hasn't been applied to the side of this EMD yard switcher yet.
The two industrial smokestacks in the background, are from Chicago's Northwest waste to energy plant on Kilbourn near Chicago Ave.
