Pumping Station Road Bridge
Posted May 18, 2016, by Patrick Cooney

See, I think me and my friends are the reason that gate is closed. That land is owned by some VERY angry individuals. When we went exploring the BNSF mainline, we had found the pumping station and since the gate was open and the signs so faded you couldn't read them, plus the road being listed as a public one on GPS, we thought it was okay to go look around.

Got confronted by the presumed owners and got held at gun point and were told to wait till the police came. I talked them down and barreled out of there and didn't slow down until we were back in Peoria County.

So Poison Ivy isn't the only dangerous thing with this hobby....
