Does anyone out there have anykind of map that shows the Stone Harbor Branch tracks? Anything would be useful. Thanks!

Looking through a couple of books I have in my inventory I was able to find a map detailing this in the book "By Rail To the Boardwalk" by Richard M. Gladulich. I found it on page 318 as part of Appendix B. The date on the map is July 31 ,1931, so just before PRSL. The map shows all the WJ&S and Atlantic City RR routes so its not exclusive. Would you have access to this?

Stone harbor Connection?

Was there a track connection between the Reading's Stone Harbor Railroad and the Pennsy's West Jersey and Seashore RR on the barrier island at Stone Harbor? Was one built near the end of service, after the Stone Harbor Railroad's draw bridge was out of service, and the terminal isolated from the mainland?
I've seen a photo of a Stone Harbor RR passenger train captioned as unloading on the mainland approach to the damaged draw so the passengers could walk across the highway bridge to the seashore.
