On the Southeast leg of the wye.  Several years after these photos were taken, the track configuration was changed at the wye.  Here, you can see a siding to the left.  This siding was removed in the late 80's and  new siding was installed that follows the curve on the other leg of the wye.  The other leg of the wye is visible in the extreme left center are of this photo, just behind the person wearing the red shirt.
