Due to track construction, this temporary buffer marks the end of the line. The grade crossing is under construction as well as the Rancocas Creek Bridge. This photo, taken April 15, 2001, also shows the grade crossing at Pavilion Avenue. The new SJLRT station will be just north of the grade crossing.

The old station, while intact, is owned by Zurbrugg Hospital and is used to house a Thrift Shop.
