Googlefanning ... as of the most recent street view (2019), rails were still in the pavement crossing Blanding St., and a few bits were present between there and the bridge and of course on the bridge. Everything else past the curve to Glascock St. is gone.

The satellite view appears to be from when the track removal was in progress. The street view appears to be from a little bit later, after much of the equipment had left.

One wonders if the RR bridge will be demolished? Does UP still own it?

There's an interesting little MS Train Simulator (Open Rails is now preferred) territory for the ABL. Not clear exactly which era it's modeling, though it uses diesels and is far enough back to have most of the ABL tracks that are on this map (artistic license?). The impression given by the territory is that interchange happened at a small yard (just a couple of tracks) off the SP main line, but from other discussion here it appears that interchange happened on the island. So if one were generating activities for that route, ABL work would all start at the end of Clement St. near the team track? Or did SP go down Clement and interchange at the ABL yard? Trying to figure what a SP (rather than ABL) activity would look like. And what did SP switch (if anything) along Clement?
