According to a shadow in a 1951 historic aerial, the black rectangle in the northwest quadrant was the tower's location. So the train is southbound.
The map agrees with the aerial photo concerning the connection in the northeast quadrant.
In addition to the Highland name on the sign in the photo, this tower was also known by the telegraph codes HI and ND. NYC used ND so I assume HI was Erie's code.
