NY&A Through Jamaica Station

Does anyone know which tracks (if they are assigned) that NY&A uses to pass through Jamaica Station? Is there a dedicated track(s) for the freight traffic, or they just use any available track? Thanks in advance!

Its the track on the southern side of Jamaica station. Between the most southern platform and the airtrain terminal.

Usually tracks 10 and 11 which lie between the southern platform and Johnson Ave yard. I think more nocturnal activity verse during the daytime. The RS 40 will run during daylight hours.
