On my way to work, I drive 5 miles on the
rural highway that runs parallel to UPRR track. One week, I found that MoW is on
the way and captured the images of equipment in action.
The first event occurred a week before the
crew arrived. It raised a question in my mind, can a truck driver drive a train?
Well, seeing is believing, I guess!
Hope you enjoy these pictures.
A truck hauling four wagons.

UPRR logo and drive train can be seen.
The train with 4 wagons and a small crane
A bundle of 15 sleepers tied with steel tape
A week later crew arrives. This machine separates sleeper from bundle and places
them individually along the track.
After spikes are removed, new sleepers are laid in. The claws on middle right
lift rails an inch or so, to enable replacing sleepers or wooden ties.
