A yellow maintenance vehicle in front of the tracks

Burlington Northern continues to maintain the track, as can be seen by the presence of this hybrid road-rail track maintenance vehicle next to the tracks near downtown Woodinville. Note the railroad wheels at both the front and rear that can be lowered to allow it to run on railroad tracks. There are also standard railroad couplers at both ends to allow it to haul short work trains with cars containing rail, ballast, ties, etc. (Photo: Eastside Rail Now!)
