Re: Old railroad yard on N. St. Louis and Bloomingdale Ave, between Kimball and Drake?

There were several small yards off of the Bloomingdale line, the one mentioned, one east of California, and one at Damen (Robey) to the south of the line. The Robey yard still has plenty of bits remaining too! A few pasenger stations, I recall 2 or 3, are still evident too.
CP still uses about a mile of the Bloomingdale three days each week to switch thier last industry in the area, and Metra stores some balast cars there most of the time.
About CP police, I have been up and down the right of way for work and pleasure dozens of times and I have never seen the CP police.
