The Canadian National's former Illinois Central Railroad Forest Park industrial stub branchline. Forest Park Illinois. Abandoned, rails removed in 2013.

The greater Chicagoland area lost a longtime established former Illinois Central Railroad branchline in Chicago's western suburbs in 2013.

The Forest Park stub end branchline in Forest Park Illinois that connected to the former Illinois Central Railroad's Iowa Division mainline at North Riverside Illinois, was formally abandoned and the tracks removed for good in 2013 under successor railroad Canadian National.

This branchline is more than likely best remembered, for being located along the east side of the Woodlawn Cemetery on West Cermak Road.
