Thirteen hours prior, the Pennsy Saint Louisian departed Saint Louis at 6PM. It is 649AM the following morning, a minute before the scheduled arrival at Pittsburghs Penn station in Pittsburgh, PA according to the June 1956 timetable.
The early summer day is dark and wet as the train prepares to make its 25 minute stop as a Alco RS3 takes off with a local commuter train.
The large cement building in the background is Pittsburghs post office. The rotunda to the right of the PRR E8 is unique to Penn station.
