MORRIS -- An issue with the braking system on a train tangled traffic in Morris for about two hours on Thursday morning.

About at 7:20 a.m. Thursday, a train going south through Morris lost air pressure in its braking system, bringing the train to a stop in the middle of Morris, said Morris Police Chief Ross Tiegs.


Because the train was so long, it initially stopped in a place that blocked all roads connecting the city’s east and west sides.
