Euclid Avenue C

When the C train terminates at Euclid Avenue is there a loop track on a lower level to turn them around or do they just go to the yard or tail track to reverse?

There's only three places in the NYC subway system where a loop track enables turnaround: 1. The original City Hall Station on the East Side Interboro where the local trains turn around; 2. The inner loop at the original Soituh Ferry terminal where some 5 trains turn around; and 3. The outer loop at the original South Ferry terminal where 1 trains used to trun around and is now used only for car storage and non-revenue moves.

ALL other terminal stops rely on the trains being double ended and they change ends in conjunction with one or more cross overs to get over to the correct track.

Kamen,
Thank you for the map. It cleared up a lot of questions I had about all the tracks in the area.
