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.
