In 1962, while driving to the Bridgeport engine facility, I passed a huge stone quarry somewhere nearby..... can anyone help me on exactly where this was and if it is still in operation?

This quarry was served by the Reading mainline at one time but the remains of all trackage were removed several years ago when the Philadelphia Inquirer printing plant was built.I'm going a little off topic here, and asking if the Philadelphia Inquirer plant use rail service for delivery of paper rolls?
