Pittsburgh Railways Interurbans: 1960 to Present
Presented by Richard Aaron

Rail service in Pittsburgh’s Saw Mill Run valley goes back as far as the early 1800s with the Pittsburgh Railways Company interurban service opening a century later. This presentation will review the history of this rail service and examine the last sixty years of light rail operations in the valley. We will see photographs at most of the stops on the Library and Drake routes in a "then and now" format. This will show the metamorphosis of the railway into a contemporary light rail line. There also will be coverage of some special movements and events.

A Question & Answer session and discussion will follow the program.

For the best experience, we recommend downloading Zoom in advance.
