Metra service on the BNSF railway was stopped Wednesday from 11:51 a.m. to about 4:45 p.m. after a movable crane being used by railroad workers to install a new signal bridge fell over and blocked all three tracks just west of Cass Avenue in Westmont.
No persons were injured as a result of the incident, but there were, no doubt, some persons who were frustrated. The crane boom wasn't sawed off from the base and removed until about 4:15 p.m., and the first trains went through the Westmont Metra Station at 4:42 p.m.
, and took plenty of photos, which can be seen above.
