According to maps from historicaerials.com, this line (The New York Central's Castleton Cutoff, per the map.) and what is now the CSX line merge/split at Stuyvesant.

I have been trying to find evidence of the tracks this was connected to - it's not the current CSX or Amtrak lines. The CSX line is my property boundary up to Schoolhouse road. I walked up there but didn't find evidence of another rail line where this one crosses 9J. Anyone know anything?
