CP Pike

Hey;
anyone know where CP Pike is in NJ?
It seems to be somewhere in the vicinity of the OI yards in Newark, as I can hear trains moving past it on the Conrail NJ channel.

Thanks

CP

pike is the south end of the crossover, from the east receiving yard at oak island. "oak" is the end at lv oak island, "pike" is the end at the turnpike bridge, on the pc end of the connection. :wink:

That clears it up, thanks! haha

I know that CP Fran is what CP PN used to be, but what is the name of the junction about 2 miles south of that? Where the E-Port Yard and E-Rail yards converge onto the Chemical Coast? On google maps there are a handful of crossovers so I'm pretty certain all of those crossovers wouldnt be handthrown.

Any help?
