|RECOVERY NOTE BY COAST AND GEODETIC SURVEY 1957 (JBW)
A THOROUGH SEARCH WAS MADE FOR THIS STATION BUT IT COULD NOT BE FOUND. THE ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION APPEARS TO BE RATHER WEAK WHICH MAY ACCOUNT FOR THE DIFFICULTY. THE ENTIRE AREA WHERE THE STATION IS LOCATED IS COVERED WITH CINDERS FROM PASSING TRAINS AND IT IS THOUGHT THAT THE STATION AND REFERENCE MARKS COULD POSSIBLY BE BURRIED UNDER THESE CINDERS.
