L&N Mikado 1580
Title:  L&N Mikado 1580
Description:  J-3 class Mikado 1580 had just crossed the New Orleans Terminal Co. (Southern Railway) tracks at N.O.T. Tower (milepost 803.7) and was crossing the Marigny Canal. The engine had set out its cars at Gentilly Yard (milepost 800.4), and was on its way to Julia Street Yard (milepost 806.4) - along with an auxiliary water car and caboose 683 - where the crew would tie up. The roof of N.O.T. Tower can be seen above the caboose. The 1580 was one of 93 USRA-design light Mikados on the L&N. The 1500-1517 were built by Lima in 1919, while the 1518-1592 were built by Alco between 1920 and 1923. The 1580 was retired on 12 December 1951. (approximate day)
