Found this photo of the flood on March 20, 1936 in Pittsburgh.  Not sure which railroad this is but it is interesting.  Says on back 45 dead, 350 hurt.

Interesting photo - the photographer is likely on a railroad car in the PRR Manchester Yard along the Ohio River just downriver from Pittsburgh.  I believe the structure to the far left of the photo is the Ohio Connecting Bridge approach.
