I'll state readily that I've never worked for transit, but again, eyeballing it, the tracks north of the switch that itself is north of City Hall (I do not know its lever #) do not look long enough to store a train, and in fact, about 12 years ago, the east one was shortened a little bit more when they build some sort of concrete block structure at the north end of Canal Street.

I ride the R and W through there often enough, and I have never, ever, seen a train on those tracks (north of the City Hall switch). The rails look old, and the dwarf signals look almost original. In fact, the tracks look almost unfinished!! There are no visible ties or ballast on them- just rough dirt, not even really tamped down, between the rails.
