And right behind the flat and gondola is a steam driven pile driver, which you neglected to mention!

That is one of many images on the Historic Pittsburgh site showing repair work after the 33rd Street Sewer Explosion of 1913. The bridge and ground level tracks are all B&O, formerly the Pittsburgh Junction Railway here. There are many vintage freight cars in these photos.

 

This 1910 Hopkins Plat Map shows the location adjacent to the Allegheny River with a Carnegie Steel facility.

The bridge approach was above 33rd Street here.
