Bedford Park Blvdv (B,D)


Kingsbridge Road/Grand Concourse, is a well designed terminus unlike the terminus one stop north 205 Street, the stations layout is well designed. The terminating 'local' trains are in the center track, the continuing trains 'express' (if running), are on the two local tracks. This is all possible with out really being felt when the tracks 'rollover' each other, then there is switching between all, after the station the middle terminating track continues into the Concourse yard (more switches after the station). A train is stored in the center track during the weekends. The station hold crew quarters for both the B and D lines so D trains stop for a minute to change crew. The trim and column colors are a dark green, the mezzanine is a little smaller then other Concourse Line Mezzanines.
