function



The Illinois Central once passed along this grade. The track and ties are long gone and the county has created a path for bicycles, hikers and joggers.

The original underpasses remain and although they are quite small, farmers continue to use them as passage to the roadway. As you drive by the concrete form of the underpass creates a frame around the rural scene.

Great Picture Frame

We have an active rails to trails program here. Nice way to preserve unique ribbons of land and if in a gasless future we realize we need trains again, well...
