After setting off some cars at Adams Yard, CP TH21 headed back westward down the Beach Branch towards the Belt Line, from where they shoved back across Gage Ave and Birmingham Street, and then went across the diamond at Irondale and up into Bell & MacKenzie - the destination for the three hoppers. The track in the foreground is CN's N&NW Spur, and the two tracks in between are for interchange traffic. I posted a shot of CN here back in January, lifting cars from the interchange. CN seems to be using this area for car storage now too, as a cut of covered Illinois Central gons have been sitting in the area for two or three months now.
