The Pittsburgh Division largely maintained its identity throughout the (then) modern era of the railroad. The Pittsburgh Division existed within the Western Pennsylvania Grand Division as of the 1941 reorganization. In the 1951 reorganization, the Monongahela Division was absorbed by the Pittsburgh Division. In the 1956 reorganization into Operating Regions, the Pittsburgh Region absorbed the Middle, Connemaugh, Eastern, and Panhandle divisions.
