This series explores detailed views of two abandoned railway cars parked near Station Square under the Panhandle Bridge (Monongahela River Bridge), Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. One of the cars is an Erie-Lackawanna electric passenger car and the other (see photo below) is a Bottle Type hot metal car built by MH Treadwell Company of Easton, Pennsylvania.
There's a walking path that passes within ten feet of these
railway cars. There's nothing aesthetically pleasing about either
one of these graffiti-covered cars when viewed from a distance. Once
I got up close, however, and crawled underneath and inside of the
passenger car, my perspective changed. I became fascinated with the details.
