At Peerless, there were no empty pulls, so it was just a matter of shoving the loaded tank of corn syrup into place. You'll note that like everyone else in the candy business, Peerless now uses mostly corn syrup instead of the costlier cane or beet sugar. When was the last time you saw an airslide hopper spotted there? At the time, the remains of the bakery spur were mostly intact, but the points and frog had been cut from the switch. There was also evidence that someone had probably had to do a pull-two/spot-two move and crossed Diversey and gone a few carlengths north into the abandoned track. At the time, there was also about 3 more blocks of rail mostly in place, but no one much cared anymore.
