NOPB DS-4-4-660 47         
New Orleans Public Belt Railroad number 47 was switching the south end of Claiborne Yard, along the west side of the Inner Harbor Navigation Canal. The smokestacks identified the location of the Lone Star cement plant, and were landmarks in this neighborhood for many years. The 47 was a Baldwin DS-4-4-660 built in January 1949 for $73,950. It was traded-in to EMD the year after this photo was taken and it was scrapped in New Orleans. (approximate day)
