Boy, You all got me thinking. Grew up and played around those tracks on the northwest side and went to Lane Tech so I am trying to remember what California and Addison looked like back then.... There used to be a patch of land we played in behind the west side of Neenah between Roscoe and Cornelius that we called "the woods" and the tracks ran along side of that. There was an abandoned car in there that attracted kids like a magnet. They built apartments there in the seventies, I think, which perhaps took out the tracks??? Yes, I think that stretch of track was paved over by a driveway in to the complex. Hmmmm. If I think of something more I will post my thoughts.... Looks like it's time for a road trip to refresh my memory, although I only need to come from Hoffman Estates... LOL
