Charlie, I can't find anything on Lonsdale. Somewhat close is Lovedale but that was on the original Aurora branch from Turner Jct. It was located between North Aurora and Aurora. Today that would be in the general area where I88 goes overhead.

One puzzle that I’ve not been able to dope out is what the significance of the name Lonsdale was to the early CB&Q.
I believe it shows up as a stop very early on the Chicago Branch and, of course, there was the 4-4-0 of the same name.

Could it be a predecessor to Lawndale??

Fairly deep searches in Chicago history don’t turn up any suggestions other than a few residents by that name.
