South Hills Junction in 1906

In the background a Pittsburgh & Castle Shannon Railroad steam passenger train in route to Castle Shannon (via the Overbrook Line) can be seen

The streetcars and the steam passenger train bound for Castle Shannon would run on a 3 rail track. The third rail was required because of the different rail gauge between the streetcars and the steam passenger train. By 1915 the third rail was removed and steam passenger train service was discontinued
