Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad Company Records

What's online?

The Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad Company online collection contains images from 1886 through 1971 showing various branch lines that were controlled by the New York Central from 1883 through 1968, and then by Penn Central. The images also document many non-railroad activities and scenes in urban and rural areas of Western Pennsylvania's Allegheny, Beaver, Fayette, Lawrence, and Washington counties, as well as in some of the bordering counties of West Virginia and Ohio.

Images were selected that depict railroad equipment, such as rail cars and engines, as well as the stations, the industry, and the small towns through which the railroad passed. On January 18, 2013, over 350 images were added to the online collection.
