Crossover of Reading and PRR lines in Cape May County Courthouse

I have always been interested in this. I know there is a middle township bike path and it intersects with the old Reading line. Was this a diamond back in the day or a bridge crossing of one over the other?

The West Jersey & Seashore crossed the Reading's Line at a diamond on its way into Wildwood, just east of Anglesea Junction. There was even a switch tower located there, where the two lines met.

I've explored the area, and the foundation of the tower can still be found in the woods along the line to Cape May.
