These are relics of the pre-intermodal era, however both this and another spur slightly to the north are both on a 1955 Southern Pacific system map. (be nice to retiring people, they give you cool stuff their wives don't want them to bring home) It would appear the Ralph's warehouse was built immediately above the visible spur and over the more northerly one.

The map only describes the site as a factory. Maybe a wartime aircraft factory because of its proximity to Grand Central Airport.
