Norma Junction: Milwaukee+C&NW vs. C&NW
(Satellite, no CRJ)
Meyer Material is now one of the Ozinga concrete plants in the Chicago area. The plant rather obviously no longer uses rail service. The New Line is shared by CN/C&NW and CP/Milw to bring freight from their northern routes southwest to the west side of O'Hare were they cross at Bryn Mawr Junction. Follow the Bryn Mawr link for a description as to how the two routes continue on to their freight yards.
