The New York City Transit Authority has to maintain each and every one of its subway cars. In addition, the cars must be stored when they are not on the road. To do this, the transit authority has many yards and shops located throughout the system.

What is the difference between a yard and a shop?

A yard is where trains are stored when they are not in use. A shop is where the trains are maintained. All shops have yards (i.e. Jamacia and Coney Island) although not all yards have shops (i.e. Lenox and Canarsie).

On this website, there are photos from the 207th Street, Concourse, Corona, East 180th Street, and Rockaway Park Yards. If you are interested in viewing photos from other yards, there is a link to another website with more photos.
