Westbound Train Climbing The Huey P. Long Bridge – 29 March 2007

by admin on 2017/03/29

This one shall be brief.  On Thursday 29 March 2007, I photographed this westbound manifest train climbing the Huey P. Long Bridge.

This appears to be one of the daily manifest trains that the CSX Railway sends to the Union Pacific Railroad in New Orleans.

You know, the last time that I had taken pictures, four days before, I took pictures of a train that went up – and back down, the same way that it came – this bridge.

I was interested in the Ferromex locomotive on the train.

This scene looks much different now that the overpass is no longer there, now that the bridge highway lane widening project has been completed.

That’s all.  Also, unlike for the rest of March 2007, when I took pictures on both the Saturday and the Sunday of every weekend, I took no pictures on Saturday 31 March, but you’ll see an interesting post for 1 April 2007!  Stay tuned.

Thanks.
