Pittsburgh Railways PCC
Photo Store

Pittsburgh Railways started in 1902 with the acquisition of several local traction companies. In 1905 Pittsburgh Railways leased the Pittsburgh & Castle Shannon Railroad which operated on a line built by the railroad in 1871 called the Overbrook Line from Pittsburgh to Castle Shannon. In 1964 the Port Authority of Allegheny County more commonly known as PAT acquired Pittsburgh Railways. At one time Pittsburgh Railways had 600 miles of track & a fleet of 666 PCC cars third largest in North America behind Chicago and Toronto, with their 683 and 745 cars, respectively. It has been said by many a traveler that Pittsburgh Railways had some of the toughest terrain for any streetcar to travel. One good example was on the 21-Fineview route where streetcars routinely attacked the 12% grade up Henderson Street. Pittsburgh was loaded with seemingly insurmountable challenges for the incredible PCC’s to overcome....but....they did it everyday!
