The Throgs Neck station is a station with a three-track, two-island platform layout. At the southern tip of the station, a path leads to the exit of the station, located on the southeast corner of Harding Avenue and Tremont Avenue. As there is not enough ridership to justify running more than one service to the Throgs Neck terminal, the station was constructed in a three-track, two-island platform layout rather than a two-track, island platform layout in order to allow trains to easily be dispatched to a new yard under Tremont Avenue. The yard was not built due to high costs and the T (since replaced by the U, which runs light to the 36-38 St/Coney Island Yards in Brooklyn or the 125th Street yard) being managed by the Pitkin Yard in Brooklyn. A bellmouth exists north of this station via the middle track to the proposed yard. As of March 2017, it has been proposed to build the yard for the U to make dispatching easier for the crew. It is not known how the yard will be funded.The station opened on March 1st, 1998.
