Awkward track

As you can see in the picture, its been a long time since the tracks ran anywhere. Not only is the ROW gone theres a new building in the way! I wonder if CN will ever bother taking it out The other side shows no sign of a ROW either, now a parking lot.
Give it about 30 years - the ties will decompose and that crossing will become very rough to go over.
 
In San Francisco, this kind of stuff is everywhere. There used to be tracks all over the waterfront and parts of downtown that disappeared into buildings, etc. There are many streets with tracks to nowhere. It would've been neat to see it in operation 40 or 50 years ago.
