I'm gonna make a trip down there and get some pics. I haven't seen any activity there since I was a kid.

Sorry but you set yourself up with that post. I showed this to a coworker, who laughed his ass off, and he recalls a similar restuaraunt but west of LSD. crowamonghens Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > i know, right? > > now come on guys.

shekaago, thanks for your input. I've seen a slightly more recent map that shows the line terminating in the middle if the cemetery just North of Addison. On Chicagoswitching.com someone left a link to a pic for me. Brought back some childhood memories. Keep me informed on your research. http://www.flickr.com/photos/dwdavidson/3913052227/in/set-72157621126657535/

HI, growing up I remember railroad tracks that ran next to the Brickyard on the Northwest side. I remember even seein a train cross Grand avenue and I thought it was the coolest thing. According to an old map it ran up to Irving. The tracks that crossed Belmont and Addison are now gone. I know they serviced some of the factories on Diversy and Nashville. Was this a remnant of the old crazy train?

I used to work at Osco on Cumberland and Lawrence in High School. The address there was Pueblo and I couldn't figure out why until someone explained that Pueblo is Cumberland in that section and Thatcher further south. That was weird because at the time I used to live on Thatcher near Osco and it wasn't Cumberland.
