Pittsburgh Railways 4300-series double-end “Jones low-floor” car.  This is the same type of car that I am operating in my avatar photo taken at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in 2014. Can anyone identify the location of this photo?  Hint: it's running on the 59 Homeville route.

     I want to say that's It is coming off of Ravine St onto 8th Avenue. Now I want a slice of De Sallas pizza!

Greg:

You got it – the Munhall Junction!  And DeSalla’s Pizza at the Junction was the best around.  It was the very first pizza I ever tasted.  But they probably weren’t there yet when this picture was taken.  The streetcars are long gone but DeSalla’s is still in business.  Can’t wait to eat a few slices on our trip “home” for the TCA Convention in June.

And attached is a photo of the restored model at the Pennsylvania Trolley Museum in “Little Washington”.

Respectfully disagree. If the system was still in operation in the 80s, I'd tell you to transfer to the 68 and get off at Latina's across from Kennywood, or take the 65 up to Lincoln Place for some Rocko's. But, then again, it's all good.
