Duquesne Brewing Company benefited from consistent, progressive leadership, whose entrepreneurial approach to both the business and technology of brewing allowed the company to successfully adapt to many changes in the brewing industry.
In 1900 – six years before the mass manufacture of automobiles – the company was also the first to introduce an electric beer delivery truck in Pittsburgh.
The £120m redevelopment of Glasgow Queen Street station is part of the Edinburgh Glasgow Improvement Programme (EGIP) – a Scottish Government-investment in the railway infrastructure across central Scotland Glasgow Queen Street station is Scotland’s third busiest railway station, providing rail connections to and from the city to the wider Glasgow area as well as throughout the country.
Regardless of any future beer narrations, resolutions or festivals, Pennsylvania indisputably has a rich brewing history and those buildings where brewing happened have been recognized by the National Register of Historic Places.
The Duquesne Brewing Company of Pittsburgh was formed by a group of South Side businessmen and incorporated on April 4, 1899 and throughout its history pioneered advanced methods of brewing, marketing, and distribution until 1972 when the company ceased operations.
Work started in November 2017 with the demolition of the former ticket office and staff accommodation block to clear the space needed to lengthen the platform.
During the project, engineers worked over 11,500 hours to remove more than 4,000 tonnes of demolition material before laying 200 tonnes of ballast, 35 metres of new sleepers and rails, and installing overhead power masts.
Since our last Just Listed post, four properties from across the Commonwealth have been listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
You can explore these National Register nominations and other historic properties in Pennsylvania via CRGIS, our online map and database.

These buildings are being demolished to make way for the new station frontage, concourse and entrances and new longer platforms being delivered as part of the station’s redevelopment.
In addition to providing more space for passengers to move around within the station, the redevelopment will also lengthen some platforms to permit the operation of eight carriage trains on the Edinburgh-Glasgow via Falkirk High Route.
Preparatory work to lengthen platforms 2-5 took place during a station closure in August 2016 while Glasgow Queen Street station’s tunnel was being renewed.
