Camden's Railroad Terminal

Does anyone know if the former Reading Terminal on the Camden Waterfront is still in existance? A cursory look from the Pennsylvania side suggested a "no" answer to that question but I thought someone might know better than me.

All the structures are gone, but you can still see where the terminal was, as well as footings for signals and interlocking towers. I'm not sure when it was demolished, but it was taken out of service in 19933 after the merger of the ACRR and the WJ&SS.

If you go to the NJ Aquarium, you will see the PRR dividing wall that was used as a border for the terminal. If you go to Kaign's Point you will see the Reading Company ferry slips that saw service off and on up until World War Two. You will also see the position of signals for the massive terminal and the occasional trolley track that terminated at Kaign's Point.
