During the late 1980s, on my way to Cape May, I remember seeing rails on this line passing underneath the Garden State Parkway. They were not being used by then. Last time I saw them was around 1990, and by 1994, they were gone. The station at Wildwood Jct. still exists, but is in very poor shape.

There is now a train ride from Tuckahoe to the Wildwood Depot running as a tourist attraction, A semi modern conveyance is used with controls at each end, never rode it, bug saw it depot an old origin Depot. So much history in that area. It blows the explorers mind even at my age, 78 years old
