Kiski Junction Railroad

Pennsylvania shortline

Situated along the Allegheny River, northeast of Pittsburgh, the Kiski Junction Railroad is a 6 mile common carrier shortline offering seasonal tourist passenger service using a variety of home-modified passenger equipment. First constructed in 1856 by the Allegheny Valley Railroad, the line was later merged into the vast Pennsylvania Railroad system, later Penn Central and Conrail. The current shortline began in 1995 and is based in Shenley, Pennsylvania, where the road interchanges with the Norfolk Southern.
