Re: Box Cars in PRR Duquesne yard 1943

Good eyes!

 

That entire area was leveled during the revitalization of the “Point” area of downtown Pittsburgh.

 

There are many photos of this area and its connections into the Produce Yard, in the Historic Pittsburgh collection.  Look for “Duquesne Way”, or “Railroad Avenue”.

 

The freight station was more oriented around non-perishable freight, which we see represented in these cars.
