Reckon it could have been on the Old N&W Kingston Branch. The VAC&RY 
leased or had operating rights from the connection at Cambria to yard 
and station.  According to annual reports of the VAC&RY.  The Kingston 
Branch also connected at Cambria.

An old, old timer, Harry Bundy told me the branch was about 8 miles long 
at one time. This branch must have been abandoned in the early 20's or 
any portion left was included in the yard limits by that time.
