Depending upon the era, both banks of each river had rail service for miles from the Point. There are wonderful opportunities for mainline, yard, and branch operations with a wide variety of customers for a layout of almost any size in any scale. 

I can sit for hours reviewing images of the Pittsburgh City Photographer collection on the Historic Pittsburgh site. You can see a city transform over time with small and large public works.

Yeah, I love that area.  The fact that it hosted SO many different freight cars is a real draw.

Thanks so much; there are so many scenes that beg to be simulated in scale.  I wouldn’t care to do the Russian Orthodox church, but there are all those lovely details: the combination of concrete and stone walls; the general grunge; the excavation in the brick-paved street; the (almost) 3-way street turnout, but not with girder rail; the riverside scenes.
