Continuing to play with TerraServer, I have visited this piece of trackage that comes off of the Water Level Route in a spot the map people call "Garden, Ohio." It's actually just west of Toledo and more specifically, Crissey. The tracks were still in place as of a year ago but I have no idea who this spur was built for.

Follow it north a few clicks. Any ideas? Thanks.

That's the Westwind(?) Industrial Park on Eber Rd. just north of Airport Hwy. I'm not sure want industry it serves but a few weeks ago there was what appeared to be a flatcar of coiled steel sitting there although it could've been just a bad order set-out from the main. All the track is still in place. The Metroparks just bought some of unused land at the west end of the park. :-)

Thanks Rick.

Funny, I can't find where loading/unloading would occur at the facility based on the picture.

I haven't been back there in a while, but the last time I was there, Johnson Controls had a few covered hoppers in (probably raw materials for the batteries they make there).
