The tracks to the yard branched off from the main Pennsy JC line just before the turnpike. The massive embankment carrying the line to the yard (minus the bridges) is still there along 6th Street. Some bridge supports on the other side of Newark Avenue from 6th Street are still there, too (including a big one right next to a basketball court in a park!). But there's nothing left of the main passenger line between the PATH portal and Exchange Place -- it was all wiped out and replaced with Columbus Dr.
Edit: I take that back -- not all traces of the trestle that ran from the PATH portal (the Waldo Yard) to Exchange Place are gone. There is part of a stone embankment still standing at Brunswick Street and Columbus Drive that marked the beginning of the trestle. It's visible here: https://goo.gl/maps/zkhmakKefH92
