Union Pacific Railroad maintenance of way department truck on North Kilbourn Avenue. Chicago Illinois USA. September 2006.

Union Pacific Railroad heavy maintenance of way department truck. Chicago Illinois. September 2006.

I took this photo one sunny morning in early September of 2006.

Seen here facing south on North Kilbourn Avenue in Chicago's Northwest Industrial Park, is a light yellow Union Pacific M.O.W / Maintenance Of Way department heavy GMC truck.

The truck was parked just immediatrely north of a single track industrial railroad spur siding that crosses North Kilbourn Avenue. The heavy on board crane and set of railroad flanged wheels, indicates that this truck might be utilized for making spot repairs to freight cars at any given online job site.
