4893 Feldman Road Morrison IL.JPG

East of Morrison, Illinois

Close-up of UP 1995 Approaching Feldman Road. The Conductor’s Silhouette can be seen in the windshield as he rides along in the Comfort Cab of a SD70ACe.
Leaving Feldman Road my goal is to get ahead of the train before it reaches the BNSF overpass at Acker Road. The stoplights in Morrison are on my side as they are all Green as I roll though town. At Union Grove I pass over the engines as I gain the Lead on the train. Going through the S curves just east of Acker road I am again reminded of the icy roads. I watch an oncoming Pick-up truck slide into the opposite ditch and then the car directly in front of me spins a 180 blocking my lane. I move into the left lane and maneuver around the car, again thankful for my 4X4. Turning onto Acker road I see the car that spun out recover and my thoughts return to the chase at hand.
