I was reading in another forum that the old LNE Caty branch is intact but oos up until Airport Rd. However, looking at live maps you can clearly see the branch from the current NS Cement line where it branched off all the way to Caty... BUT just after the swich a square shaped farm field of some type severed the row. Is this the case now or am I not following the branch correctly

The track has been gone since the late 1980's/early 90's. Last used to service the industrial park at Schoenersville. The right of way is still mostly intact, however.
