A Saturday in Pittsburgh!

The Virtual Railfan team and other passengers of the 2021 Whistle Stop Tour will arrive in Pittsburgh on Friday night — leaving all day Saturday for some city fun and railfanning!

It will be a casual day. Some of us simply plan to railfan at various places around the city and grab lunch somewhere. Others may want to explore the many museums and attractions that Pittsburgh has to offer, and join us for dinner at Fogo de Chão Brazilian Steakhouse. It will be quite the dining experience!  Advanced purchase not required, but we do need to get a head count — please submit this form by October 1, thanks!

A few ideas if you going off on your own for the day (this is just a smidge of everything Pittsburgh has to offer!)

  • Carnegie Museum of Art

    The Andy Warhol Museum

    Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

    Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium

    National Aviary

    Carnegie Science Center

Have a wonderful time, hope to see you there!
