Roller bearing truck detail. Chicago Illinois USA.October 2006..

I took this photo of a modern roller bearing equipped railroad truck or "Bogie" as Brittish Railfans refer to them as, on Chicago's near southwest side. Seen here in Chicago's Little Village neighborhood parked on the former Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad Illinois Northern industrial branchline at South Spaulding a modern tank car waiting to be spotted at a small asphalt company. The amount of functianal working detail on railroad equipment is quiet astounding when one takes a closer look.
