The local CP Rail switch job is working a food company warehouse in early 1990 on a gray, Chicago winter day. The location is Morgan St. at Carroll Ave., just north of the CP Rail main line. This switch job used the same crew as the Kingsbury line and worked alternate days to the North Side operation. With the rapid redevelopment of the West Loop area in the 1990s, this area is now almost unrecognizable and this particular switching operation is now history.
The Soo Line crew backs down the spur to pick up empty cars inside the warehouse building just ahead. Note the abandoned track segment now paved over on the left, and the rest of the train, including a Milwaukee Road caboose, waiting in the background. In the distance are the remains of the once extensive Milwaukee Road freight terminal.
