the platform layout at Fordham Road

Fordham Road/Grand Concourse definitely goes in the category of unique subway stations, the three track two platform express station is huge in various ways. The southbound platform has a unique almost V-Shape (See the diagram), the mezzanine is also split in a similar manor. The station has blue columns and blue trim; there are also name tablets that exist on the areas of the southbound platform where it is split. The station has two exits a main one to 188 Street at the center of the platform and a secondary one to Fordham Road at the front of the station that is accessible directly (the mezzanine can also be used) only from the northbound platform, and the southbound express platform along it's split portion.
