Charlie - No, track direction is all wrong, and the Loop track had/has been gone since 1948, long before the EL and the U34's and PS push-pulls showed up.
 
I am going to say that this is West Chester Jct (if that name is even given to this location, that is)......That is, I believe, the "Horn Track" that is the connection that allowed the CNJ/EL pool trains direct access to go east or west without having to do a "Z turn" in the plant at Lake Jct/Chester Jct.

 
Chester Jct. it is. The train is heading east into the early morning sun on the way to Hoboken.  The connection track built for the ES99 trains is at the left in the background.  
 
Part of the Rockaway loop still exists in Denville as the Y, but yes the direction is wrong for it to be that track.

From a recent road trip.. New York state, DL&W branch ran to the right and connected with another RR to the left. Looking from station platform.

Too far north. Another Hint: - the connecting RR was a real country shortline that was abandoned 50+ years ago.

Yes ! Bridgewater NY on the Richfield Springs branch.  
 
The connecting RR was the Unadilla Valley. The depot is now owned by the Bridgewater NY Historical society and is in nice shape.  
 
Turning around, the DL&W is to the left and the UV went to the right of the depot.

Here is another - New York State. The track on the left served the creamery and was also a runaround behind the station.

Matt is closer, though no tracks in Cincinnatus anymore. I think the station has been restored there.  
 
Not Norwich, this is on the line to Syracuse.

Marathon, perhaps?
 
I can't recall whether that station was poured concrete, however.....

Yes, it is Marathon NY.  
 
The depot is pure concrete and the interior is in great condition. I assume the NYS&W restored the interior from what I can see.  
 
The runaround track continued to the right and also served a feed mill.

Good weather for fall hiking and I found this historical spot. The DL&W / EL is on the concrete high bridge passing over a river and another abandoned row that I am standing on . - GTL
