According to my photographic records, it appears that I drove my frequent drive from bayouland to Whoadieville on 13 January 2007. I got, in Raceland, a shot that wouldn’t have been worth the effort had I not been passing through.
Later on, in Paradís, I caught the Chip Local coming through.
‘Twas quite unusual to see CN family gondolas on this train.
Next, we’re back in New Orleans, where we see a meet – likely, a crew stop – at Marconi on the NS Back Belt.
What happens here is that a CSX crew arrives on the westbound train, a Union Pacific crew arrives on the eastbound train, and, if both crews are yard crews, they swap.
This place is special to me. Thanks for checking it out.
