Landers Yard to Chicago Ridge

From the Metra Wrightwood station (MP 10.8), a single platform on the north side with a brick depot on that side, the single track line continues southwest, passing extra track on the northwest side, a street alongside to the southeast, signals, and a flat crossing with the two-track north-south former GTW line. TC single track ends and ABS double track starts at the Metra Ashburn station (MP 12.2, with two side platforms, a depot to the southeast, and a grade crossing over an east-west street within the platforms, and the line passes a grade crossing over the intersection of north-south and east-west streets, a street alongside to the southeast, a grade crossing at the intersection of major north-south and east-west streets, a grade crossing over a southeast to northwest street, two grade crossings over north-south streets, a grade crossing over an east-west street at the northeast end of the Metra Oak Lawn station (MP 14.8), with two side platforms and depot to the southeast, (and an old depot on the northwest side, west of the station), a grade crossing with a north-south street, a spur trailing in to the southeast, a former grade crossing, and two grade crossings with north-south streets.

A southwest to northwest connector to the IHB line departs on the northwest side of the line, with extra track on the northwest side and a bridge over a stream, northeast of the subsequent flat crossing (with appropriate signals) with the two-track west-northwest to east-southeast IHB, following which a southeast to southwest connector trails in on the southeast side just northeast of a grade crossing and the Metra station (two side platforms, depot to the southeast) at Chicago Ridge (MP 16.4).
