Frank: Heavy rainfall and melting snow. See the 1936 PRR book covering
the flood in the mid to eastern Pennsylvania state that greatly affected
much of its territory.

Good afternoon, all:

Three Railway Express Agency delayed service and embargo notices appear at
http://www.railwaymailservicelibrary.org/ebay/flood'36.pdf It appears that
the flood damage was extensive over a very large geographic area during
mid-March 1936. This is too early for hurricane season. It is also too
late for a fast thaw of accumulated snow. Does anyone have information why
the N&W Shenandoah Division as far north as White Post was affected?

Thank you,
