A corporation organized under the Railroad Act of 1872 is a commercial railroad, and is controlled and limited in its powers by the laws applying to railroads. The fact that its charter refers to it as a street railroad does not change its nature.

Stannard v. A. E. & C. R. Co., 220 I11. 496. The fact that a railroad company to which a right of way has been deeded has mortgaged the premises, is evidence contradicting the allegation that it has abandoned such right of way.
