A Metra, Caterpillar heavy duty front end loader. Glenview Illinois USA. September 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo recently one evening after work, in north suburban Glenview Illinois USA.
Chicago's Metra commuter rail agency, had just completed repairs at the Chestnut Avenue railroad crossing in Glenview Illinois.
This Caterpillar heavy duty front end loader, assisted greatly in moving a large section of panel track.
This is the rear or "Radiator" end of this large heavy duty machine used primarilly in the construction industry.
