My teenage daughter and I were wondering about the old railroad tracks on Wolcott north of Foster Ave. in the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor. Was there a full-fledged railroad running through there? Why were the tracks never removed? What kind of supplies did the trains bring and what industries were based there?
