A chicken refused to leave the rods of a caboose car in Fairfax Monday after having bummed a ride from possibly as far as Denver on the CB&Q. The crew noticed “Old Biddy” when the train pulled in at Pacific Junction just south of Council Bluffs Monday morning and tried to lure her off with chicken feed. Without luck with this approach, they laid some corn on the undercarriage next to her which she promptly devoured, but refused to leave her perch. The train sat in Fairfax for close to an hour while switching was in progress and when it pulled out the bum was still on the rods.
