PATransit Tuesday: T Plus

The new T stations and the North Shore connector opened this weekend.  I’m super excited actually, I haven’t ridden the T in probably close to 15 years (damn you for not going East or to places like the Waterfront, South Side, Oakland, Water Works, etc).

But I’m going to a Pirates game in April, and I plan on taking the T over to the North Shore.

In the meantime though, you can find out more information and see pictures of the new stations here.  I’d love to hear if anyone has taken advantage of it yet, sound off in the comments below.

Update: Benstonium hits it out of the park with this new video.

Waiting to get on the LST 325

Land development news not related to the casino

Two items of note from up here on the mountain.  The former Dinner Bell Tavern is now under new ownership and is now known as the Roadside Tavern. 

Roadside Tavern, Route 40

Word is that the previous owners had irreconcilable differences and it revered to the owners before them since they still had two payments left.  It got sold once again and with a new coat of paint, we have a new establishment.  No longer red (reminiscent of the infamous chainsaw incident), and supposedly with a new interior as well, it opened this past weekend.  Presumably, Dinner Bell Road will remain, considering that one side of 40 is Dinner Bell Five Forks Road and the other is Dinner Bell Ohiopyle Road, otherwise, no news to report on the road names.

 

The next bit of news is rumor for now, I don’t know (and doubt) if either variation is true, I’ll have to do some more digging when I get to a better internet connection.  Nemacolin Woodlands has apparently either been under some sort of financial stress, or possibly just feeling the economic squeeze most people are.  Anyway, it is rumored that two entities are looking to purchase the property: Donald Trump or Disney.  It was rumored for a while that Trump bought the above mentioned Roadside Tavern, but that rumor quickly turned into Nemacolin.  Like I said, all speculation for now, but interesting bits of news nonetheless…and land news that has nothing to do with the North Shore.
