This 1914 map of “Electric Lines of the Pittsburgh District” (click to enlarge) shows the remarkable system of interurban cars that ran through every substantial town in southwestern Pennsylvania. The line that runs almost due south from Pittsburgh is still active as far as Library in the form of the 47L streetcar route.
Why should the beautiful die?

Is there any information about Paul Simmen being part of building the interurban lines in Pittsburgh. He was my 3rd cousin and he invented the first Positive Train Control system and I know he was an engineer with Mellon to help construct the interurban lines in PA.
