A day on the Monongahela Railway
The railroad that has a name outsiders struggle to pronounce--The Mo-non-ga-he-la Railway once existed to bridge coal loads from the Appalachian mines to the Pittsburg steel mills. It was a short-line railroad, based in South Brownsville, PA. Practice saying the name of the railroad and look at the photos, you will discover what lots of coal-road fans already know, the Monongahela was an interesting railroad. John rode a Greyhound Scenicruiser bus (the type that had the upper level with its own front windshield and view) from Pittsburgh to visit to the Monongahela Railway and their main yard in Brownsville, PA. in 1969. Cue Simon & Garfunkel and that song of theirs about riding the Greyhound to Pittsburg. Sadly, today the area and its once thriving industry base is no more, nor is the Monongahela Railway. Now it is known as the Mon subdivision of the Norfolk Southern.
