This next section in the Pittsburgh series is devoted to the Beechview route between South Hills Junction and the rejoining of the lines in Castle Shannon.  Beechview presents a much more old-time and appealing feel to its run than the alternate way south, the greatly renovated Overbrook line.  Trains pass through a variety of settings, including joint bus-train transitway, street operation, several viaducts over the undulating landscape, and along the private right of way pictured here that slices through the community of Dormont.
