The following 1924 aerial view link answers your question about West Farms Square Yard. You were correct that the original station was further south:

It appears there was a repair shop at that location.
You mentional express runs on the old els. There was an even longer one on the 3rd avenue el from 42 St to 106 St. I rode it in 1952, but was disappointed the train never went faster than about 35MPH.
