Not on CN. The spur would have became inactive not very long ago based on appearance, or someone prefers to keep up on maintenance.

Scotten Avenue at the Renaissance Global Logistics spur. Looking at the Nicholson Terminal & Dock Company.
Last street view has buildings which are now gone.
Plus some private person/company has street view images that are not at the correct map location to make things more fun.

Active CSX mainline is less than 1000ft directly behind the far side of the trailer in the original photo.
The trailer is the first one on the right as you pull into the parking lot.

That spur is north off the Union Belt Lines (old Wabash, old C&O and old Pennsy railroads), Detroit.

Junction Valley RR, Bridgeport, MI. looking south from old M-38. I was there with my best railfan friend in July, 1998. Junction Valley RR closed permanently on Labor Day, 2016 and its hobby shop closed permanently October 31, 2017 after 35 years.
