CNW GP15-1 4416 switching Meyer Material while a northbound Soo Line freight passes on the New Line at Norma Jct in Des Plaines, Illinois - November 1987.
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.
