Savor images of Conrail action across the Pittsburgh Line – the very soul of this once mighty transportation giant, as captured during the late 1990s. See how Big Blue conquered the Allegheny Mountains and witness the diverse variety of freight it sent over the line. Huge intermodal trains powered by shiny new “Blue” diesels hustle doublestacked containers over the recently rebuilt right-of-way. Massive coal trains and high tonnage freights flow across the double and triple track of this most scenic and demanding stretch of railroad.

Starting west of Pittsburgh at the massive Conway Yard, heading east through the Steel City, Greensburg, and Latrobe to Conpit Junction, we follow the trains into the heart of the Allegheny Mountains. The line comes down through Conemaugh Gorge to Johnstown. From here most eastbounds get helpers to pull tonnage over the mountains. The trains put on great shows on the west slope as they work through Cresson, past MO Tower, to the summit at Gallitzin and down to Altoona. For a grand finale we follow westbound traffic from Altoona to the Gallitzin tunnels. View famous spots such as Alto Tower, Horseshoe Curve, Allegrippis, and Bennington Curve as train after train assaults the east slope of the Alleghenies. You’ll experience Conrail to its fullest in this farewell tribute to the men, women, and machines of the railroad known as Big Blue!

  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    This is a great video as I expect from Pentrex. It starts out in Conway Yard and works East to Pittsburgh. Train symbols are shown and narration is excellent. The Conrail OCS is shows as is a GP15-1 switching cars and sounding great. There are several multi train meets which is common on the Pittsburgh Line. A great video that I highly recommend.

  2. Rated 4 out of 5


    If you are a fan of Conrail this is a great video. a good mix of wide nose and older engines. I would suggest this video to any railfan and as in most Pentrex videos, great narration and maps. Of course horeshore curve is shown and even Amtrak.
