Corona Yard
(Text and photos by Jeremiah Cox on 7 December, 2003)

The Corona Yard is the home of the 7 line and is its only yard. The revenue service rooling stock is all R-62A. When I was there, the work cars were R127-130 (the garbage train). and there is an old revenue service car that has been converted to a work car. The yard is easily viewed from the walkway across to Flushing Medows Park that connects to Willets Point-Shea Stadium. Next to the yard is the small Casey Stangle Bus Depot. On the otherside is the Long Island Rail Road Game/event day only Shea Stadium Station. The tracks enter the system between Willets Point-Shea Stadium and 111 Street meaning many rush hour 7 trains terminate at 111 Street.
