More about this marker. If you follow Railroad Avenue until you cross Lake Ave about 1/4 mile or so northwest, the road name becomes Old Hojack Lane and appears to follow the route of the old tracks for some way. Where Old Hojack Ln. starts, there's a piece of leftover railroad materiel I call an end-of-the-line bumper (see photo.)
