    Hello,
    I have the DVD Pittsburgh Mainlines and was looking for a book, which is about Rails in Pittsburgh, but couldn´t find one. Is there maybe one, I didn´t see?
    Thanks and stay safe

    If you have an interest in black and white photos of Pittsburgh area railroading from the 1930s to the 1960s, look for an excellent softcover book titled PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD'S GOLDEN TRIANGLE by KOBUS & CONSOLI, c. 1998. It includes a good map too.

    I just remembered another great book, The Pennsy in the Steel City by the same authors Kobus and Consoli, c. 1997.

    Also, a new book Trackside around The Steel City with Ed Horm will be released 08/01/2020 and it will cover the 1960s and 1970s. There's also Trackside around Pittsburgh 1985-2005 with David Baer by Timko that is currently available. There are a number of books on specific Pittsburgh area railroads if they're of interest to you.
