Goose Island had some interesting trackwork. At the southern end of the island the track running down Cherry Avenue and North Branch Street joined with the track that ran down Hickory Avenue near the Ogden Avenue overpass. This arrangement allowed crews two different routes back to the Division Street Yard to the north if either of the two lines were blocked by parked trucks, freight cars spotted for drop-off in the street, or derailment. The tracks came together at the site of a scrap yard, the Ozite Corporation, which used to receive gondolas into the early 1980s. On the right is the track in this 1990 photo that came in from North Branch while the track on the left went into the Pickens-Kane warehouse building formerly used by Lissner and Wieboldts. The 1991 rebuilding project of North Branch severed these tracks. Out of view and in the distance the tracks from Hickory and North Branch joined together.
