MP 2322 Leads Operation Lifesaver Special
Title:  MP 2322 Leads Operation Lifesaver Special
Description:  One of the great things about train spotting in the New Orleans area was the large assortment of railroads. This five railroad assortment also carried the governor of Louisiana with the MP, ICG, KCS, SP and UP all represented on this trip. The train is headed west and coming off the Huey P. Long brdge. My friends with the MP who invited me to ride could not understand why I chose not to ride. This scene will never happen again.

WP 3519
Title:  WP 3519
Description:  One of my all time favorite shots. If you look in a book about the California Zepher that is a shot taken in this same exact spot. I saw the book later on and compared the bushes and trees which were barely unchanged in the 30-40 year time difference in the photographs. Cabooses were on the headend of the train because of a large derailment at the Keddy Wye.
