An "Inner Loop" train is curving around a short
single-track stretch in this view. The station ahead for it is Terminals 8/9,
and then it will work its way back toward Terminal 1, and completion
of another circuit. There are six
stops to serve the nine terminals.
The tracks curving to and from the right beyond the rail car in this photo go to and from
the transportation centers at Howard Beach and Jamaica Station.
Only the right-hand one is in regular use, as the normal procedure
is for trains on both those lines to circulate
counter-clockwise on the outer track.
