The Conway Classification Yard is 23 miles northwest of Pittsburgh and was built by the Pennsylvania Railroad in the early 20th-century and then was rebuilt as a double hump yard in 1956. It is one of the largest railyards in the eastern United States.

The eastbound yard is semi-automated with 10 reception tracks, 54 classification tracks and 10 departure tracks, while the westbound automated yard has 11 reception tracks, 53 classification tracks and 10 departure tracks. The yard as a whole can hold 11,000 rail cars and can classify 6,000 cars per day. Conway Yard also houses a locomotive maintenance facility.
