New Lots Avenue is the eastern (railroad southern) terminal of the IRT New Lots Line of the New York City Subway. It has two tracks and one island platform. It is the terminal for some rush hour 2 and 5 trips, the 3 train at all times except late nights, and the 4 train during late nights (as well as a few rush hour trains). The station has an active tower and crew quarters at platform level. To the south of the station, the tracks curve into Livonia Yard. East of the station, there is a never-used trackway structure which continues for about 75 feet. This extension was a provision for the line to continue east on New Lots Avenue. Another never-realized provision south of the station, proposed in 1968, called for an extension of the line to go southbound from Livonia Yard to Flatlands Avenue as part of an unrealized New York City Subway expansion.
