The Last Keystone by yankeedog The Last Keystone by yankeedog
At the end of Penn Station's passenger train shed along Liberty Avenue in Pittsburgh is the last remaining PRR Keystone. The train shed at Penn Station was built in the 1950s to replace original arched train shed built in 1902.

That's a highly likely scenario. It would still be very ironic if that were to happen though...to build a new train station across town from the country's third largest (and unusable) train station...

I'm sure hat's what will happen. It's that old/bad, new/good mentality that politicians have. It might work out for Union Station because they would likely mess it up.

Agreed with all of the above. Lots of people have swiped the SP shields that adorned many of the overpasses here on the West Coast.

That's too bad. I don't understand why people do that, but I wish I had the Keystone that was on the Freight House across from Penn station. :-)

I hope this one stays. That's a piece of history.

It sure is, even if it only dates to 1950. I think it's safe because Penn Station has Historic Landmark status, but you never know.

There was a beautiful little station in Craighton, PA near the PPG plant on the Conemaugh Division. I never got around to shooting a picture of it, I've always regretted that, but I never believed Conrail would tear down such a beautiful building.

It always happens that way, don't it?
