Preparing to lower the rear hi rail wheels. Des Plaines Illinois USA. November 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo last November one morning during My lunch break.
A maintenance of way department crew from the Union Pacific Railroad, is viewed preparing to lower the Hi Rail wheels on this Freightliner maintenance truck, for a journey across their freight only "Techny Line".
This behind the scenes view, was taken at the Wolf Road railroad crossing.
