The Pittsburgh LRT system incorporates many segments built prior to opening of the downtown subway on 1985 July 7, and opening of "LRT" service (worked by new light rail vehicles) on 1987 May 23. Summary:
Pittsburgh Business Center:
The segment between Penn Station, Steel Plaza and Station Square, (2.3 km) 1.4 mi, incorporates former railway formations, including the Panhandle Tunnel. The underground segment between Gateway and Steel Plaza (0.8 km) 0.5 mi was built new. Details:
--Pittsburgh horse tramway ("horsecar") service opened 1859; first electric tramway ("trolley") line opened 1888. Last in-street alignments used by tramway services, primarily in Wood Street, Smithfield Street, Grant Street and Liberty Avenue, closed 1985.
--Panhandle Tunnel opened 1863. Built by Pittsburgh & Steubenville Extension Railroad Co., later absorbed by Pennsylvania Railroad Company (PRR). Freight service withdrawn by Consolidated Rail Corporation ("Conrail") in 1980. Rebuilt 1983-1985 for LRT use. Reopened 1985.
Original length (0.3 km) 0.2 mi; length following extensions and reconstruction, (0.4 km) 0.3 mi.
Monongahela River Crossing:
Smithfield Street Bridge used by tramway services until 1985; LRT services use a former railway bridge (Panhandle Bridge, below). Details:
--Smithfield Street Bridge, (0.4 km) 0.2 mi opened 1883 with rails for horse trams in deck. Enlarged 1889 (east or "upstream" side); upstream side widened to provide reserved-track alignment for streetcars in 1911. Closed to tramcars 1985; tracks removed. Former tramcar reservation opened as a single lane for road traffic following 1994-1995 rehabilitation.
--Panhandle Bridge, (0.4 km) 0.2 mi 1903. Built by Pittsburgh & Steubenville Railroad Co., later absorbed by PRR. Freight service withdrawn by Conrail in 1980. LRT use from 1985.
Under, and Over, Mt. Washington:
--Mt. Washington Transit Tunnel, (1.1 km) 0.7 mi opened 1904. Opened to joint operation by buses and tramcars following 1974-1975 reconstruction. Renovated 1993. (The tunnel has a gradient of 6 percent, or 1 in 17, ascending from the Monongahela River valley.)
--Route 49 Arlington-Warrington, (4.0 km) 2.5 mi, created in 1971 from portions of former 47 Knoxville (48 Arlington) and 49 Beltzhoover tramway lines. Used as bypass route during reconstruction of Mt. Washington tunnel in 1974-1975.
Operation suspended 1982-1985 to permit reconstruction (of Carson Street segment). Used as bypass in 1985 during construction to connect Mt. Washington Tunnel and new ramp to Panhandle Bridge. Reopened thereafter (in 1985) as route 52-Allentown.
Operation suspended 1986 because track in New Arlington Avenue was declared unsafe. Rebuilt with double track throughout, except at the ramp to the Panhandle LRT bridge; Conrail refused to permit construction of a ramp sufficiently wide to carry two tracks over its railway line. Restored 1993; again used as bypass during renovation of Mt. Washington tunnel (1993); operation of 52-Allentown service suspended during tunnel renovation.

Dormont – Mount Lebanon eventually became route 38-Mount Lebanon, and Mount Lebanon – Castle Shannon eventually became route 38A Mount Lebanon Extension. Route 42/38 established 1963, because of closure of route 38-Mount Lebanon between South Hills Junction and Dormont.

Electrified, third running rail installed 1908 to permit operation of (1,588 mm) 5' 2½" gauge interurban cars. Beginning of service to Pittsburgh business center delayed to 1909 because of dispute between company and the municipal authority. Narrow-gauge freight service (coal trains) operated during night hours after 1909, and was withdrawn in 1912. Operation suspended 1993 because of landslides and poor condition of bridges; restored 2004 following reconstruction. (8.9 km) 5.5 mi.
