NOPB SW1000 104
Title:  NOPB SW1000 104
Description:  Recently-delivered New Orleans Public Belt SW1000 number 104 was pulling a train south along the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal (IHNC). The photo was taken from the St. Claude Avenue bridge, and the lift span in the background is the Judge Seeber Bridge on North Claiborne Avenue. The IHNC connects Lake Pontchartrain with the Mississippi River, and the structure on the right - with the red roof - is the control house for the canal's lock. The canal opened in 1921. (approximate day)

Cotton Warehouse Yard
Title:  Cotton Warehouse Yard
Description:  Back when railroads paid per diem for car usage on a daily - as opposed to an hourly - basis; the ICG, SP and KCS would all interchange cars with the New Orleans Public Belt at the latter railroad's Cotton Warehouse Yard around 6 P.M. It's 6:15 and ICG SW14 1470 is delivering a cut of cars from that railroad's nearby Stuyvesant Docks Yard, SP MP15AC's 2705 and 2710 have brought 19 cars over from their Avondale Yard and are preparing to return home, while NOPB SW1000 104 is waiting to return to work. KCS SW1500 4347 is out-of-sight at the other end of the yard, having just delivered 18 cars.
