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.

The Bald Eagle Valley Railroad was a subsidiary of the Pennsylvania Railroad which owned several rail lines in central Pennsylvania. It had its genesis in the Tyrone and Lock Haven Railroad, a financially troubled railroad chartered in 1857, which was unable to complete more than a small portion of its line before it was reorganized as the Bald Eagle Valley and funded by the PRR in 1861. Completed from Tyrone to Lock Haven in 1865 (a branch to Bellefonte had been built before 1861), it was completely controlled by the PRR and did not operate independently. However, it retained its corporate existence for some time, acquiring branch lines into the Snowshoe coal region and an extension from Bellefonte to Lemont before being merged into the PRR in 1908.
