What yard is seen on Soprano's?

During the opening credits of The Soprano's there is a brief view of a rail-yard in Jersey.....it's a real quick sot, but maybe someone from the area would be able to figure ot where it is.

That is Conrails Oak Island Hump Yard. The auto racks on the left of the scene is the departure yard lead. The shot was taken from the New Jersey Turnpike overhead bridge looking east toward NYC.

I may have a shot of that from my photo archives and I will post it here once I find it, but no promises.

That scene caught my attention and I have viewed that scene many of times in slow play.
