Westchester Avenue Station
The Port Morris Branch crosses under Westchester Avenue between Brook Avenue and St. Ann's Avenue. The White Plains Road line of the IRT (#2 train) emerges from a tunnel just east of the Port Morris Branch and is elevated over Westchester Avenue when it crosses the Port Morris Branch. Unfortunately, the crossing is about equidistant between the 3rd Ave./149th Street Station to the west and the Jackson Avenue Station to the east, making a extremely unlikely that a tunnel or viaduct would be built for direct transfer between the Port Morris Branch and the IRT.
However, there is a post office and vacant lots adjacent to the tracks at this point, so it might still be a good spot for a station. Curiously, my 2006 Hagstrom map gives the path of the Port Morris Branch as Hegney Place and there is a corresponding street sign on the south side of Westchester Ave. Hegney Place does run intermittently along the tracks north of here, so perhaps there is/was consideration of filling in the trench and converting it to a street.
West of the potential Westchester Avenue station is a vibrant shopping district on Third Avenue.
The area just north of Westchester Avenue between Brook Avenue and St. Ann's Avenue seems to have been the Westchester Avenue Yard at an intermediate point between the Oak Point yard to the south and the connection to the Harlem Line to the north. The southern part of the yard area has been taken over by South Bronx High School for multi-sport athletic fields (the Merrill Lynch Field of Dreams). A corridor has been left for the rail line right-of-way and there is a pedestrian bridge over the line. The northern part of the former yard is unimproved and accessible by pedestrians from the west. Given it's unimprovement and accessibility, this may be the easiest place to build platforms and a new station, although it puts transferrees a block further away from the IRT.
Parts of the wall have what appears to be some kind of Art deco ornamentation. However, a gentleman who used to work for NYC Transit told me that they are probably clay liners for cable ducts that separated power cables for the third rail. Some of the ducts appear to be covered over with a concrete shell that was presumably removed when the cables were removed - either by the railroad or by metal scavengers from the neighborhood.
In keeping with the initiative to break large, impersonal (and crime-ridden) high schools into smaller academies (although still housed in the same large, monolithic buildings), the South Bronx campus is home to a number of these smaller schools.
