I know of an abandoned wye track which looks to be an old CNJ wye or interchange which is currently ripped up and partialy obliterated by Roxbury Auto Wreckers. I whipped up a quick google map to outline some of the area. The wye track is outlined in yellow, is this the one your talking about?The yellow (abandoned) track is W&N. The wye is the junction between the CNJ high bridge branch and the W&N.

Edit: Here is a historical Topo map that shows lake junction well:

I would think they would be separate from the County rehab.
