I bet those are the same crossing timbers which are still (barely) existing today! The switch is still there to the News warehouse and there is still occasional rail service, though I'm not sure if it's newsprint anymore or someone else uses the warehouse for another purpose. CSX and NS both still trundle down the Boat Yard Line on weekdays to switch a few customers and the yard/transload at the end of the line. Thanks for sharing this great old photo Maddog - that was one cool looking crossing protection tower!
