It branched off right at the west end of the South Norwalk station (crossing the eastbound platform, in fact). Wilson's Point was the original terminus of the ancestral Danbury & Norwalk RR. I'm afraid I don't know what's visible these days, although I wouldn't be surprised if there were some traces of right-of-way.
You can follow most of the ROW quite well on the Google aerial view of the area.
Going way back-- into the late 19th Century-- the Wilson Point branch was home of a fascinating rail/marine operation. It was an attempt by the Housatonic and the New York & New England to outflank the New Haven on the Boston-New York run, using a carferry to connect to the LIRR at Oyster Bay. There was even an overnight passenger run, the Long Island & Eastern States Express
, that ran Brooklyn-Boston via South Norwalk, Bethel, Waterbury, Hartford and Willimantic.
