Something Interesting: How the Power Companies Travel on RR Tracks

In September I was heading to a rural appointment and had to stop at an intersection of a railroad crossing where a truck was blocking the road. From a distance I though they had an accident and were somehow sideways. When I approached closer I came to realize their blocking the intersection was on purpose. The crew was busy aligning the truck with the railroad tracks and then they lowered train wheels from underneath their truck. I was facinated, and thinking that this was not something one sees everyday I snapped a photo. I have heard about trucks that did this, but never saw the power company before in the process of transistioning a vehicle from street travel to RR tracks travel. Something interesting...
