I'm not sure if the wye was still in service at the time of this picture.
However, I have attached some pictures of the area in the late 1960's.

Also of note, it says that the train number is 1606, which NJT currently
runs as an express, leaving Spring Valley at 6:24 AM, stopping at Nanuet,
Pearl River and Secaucus before arriving in Hoboken at 7:18. Do the current
NJT train numbers have any correspondence to what was run in the E-L/NJDOT

The turning facilities were at Nanuet: a wye track ran between the
New City Branch and the Pascack, south of the Piermont Branch.
Nanuet station was inside the wye, south of Prospect St. Trains
using the wye crossed the Piermont to access the wye

There's a map in THE PASCACK VALLEY LINE by Wilson Jones, also photos
showing a train going around the wye, then backing toward Spring
