Description: 

Looking to hop on a train to escape from Lena and his newborn child, Lucas Burch heads for a particular spot: "the crest of a grade where the northbound freights slow to a terrific and crawling gait" (433). It is beside this point that Bryon tries in vain to stop him from fleeing his responsibility.
