Twisting Rails, Castle Shannon

The signal is red as an inbound train has just passed by on this twisting stretch of the joint right of way in Castle Shannon. Not too far ahead this train will curve off to the left and onto the Beechview route, but it is one of the very few trains each weekday that later on will take to the hill-climbing 52 Allentown line, rather than using the Mt. Washington Transit Tunnel, to get to Panhandle Bridge and downtown.
