Yes, but on occasion you'll find a pair or two or even an entire EMU train reversed.lirr42 wrote:I know the LIRR likes to keep all of their MU's facing the same way (every odd number facing west, every even number facing east) and strongly discourages looping or wyeing trains. Does Metro-North have a similar policy?

So, trains are looped from tracks 38-42 over to tracks 1-3. Do they just hang out there, or are they brought into the Lex yard (51-65)?truck6018 wrote:The main purpose of the loop is to yard trains. Inbound trains come into GCT, unload at the passenger loop tracks (38-42), then go around the loop into the yard. The opposite happens to take trains out of the yard.
