The connection off the route to Round Oak is there, but I’m not sure about track in the yard itself.
An application for a freight and steel terminal was refused:-
There are 7 photos from today here:
and a short video of the connection here:-
A photo from 2008, you can see where the track was in the yard at that time:-
