The Duck and the 1854 Steel Strap Rail features a rubber duck next to a section of steel strap rail at the Rochelle Railroad Park. Many early railroads ran over strap rail, a ribbon of steel installed over a wood rail. At the beginning of 2013, I made a resolution to post a weekly photograph of a rubber duck. Because my daughter loved rubber duckies so much, my goal was to post a picture a week of one of her rubber ducks. Her ducks have showed up in some pretty unusual places over the past few years as part of The Rubber Ducky Project.
