Abandoned Rails of Pittsburgh

This USGS topographical map image from 1956 shows the area around the abandonment indicated in ICC Filing 24673 below. Note the extent of B&O trackage in the area along the riverfront. Today, sports fans know this area as the site of both Heinz Field (home of the Pittsburgh Steelers football team) and PNC Park (home of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team). Click to enlarge.
