Pittsburgh Railways OnLine: The name may be misleading for those unfamiliar with the world of trolley cars. You won't find trains here -- Pittsburgh Railways Company (abbreviated PRC or PRCo.) was formed in 1902, and operated the Steel City's vast electric trolley network until 1964, when the system was turned over to the Port Authority of Allegheny County and operated as Port Authority Transit, or PAT. We pick up the story in 1936, when PRCo. acquired its first PCC cars.
