Cities of New Iberia
Title:  Cities of New Iberia
Description:  The Louisiana & Delta had only been in business for nine months when this photo was taken. SW1200 -- the CITY OF NEW IBERIA -- and CF7 2622 rest at the railroad's original engine "terminal" in New Iberia. The railroad's headquarters, located in the former Espee depot, is in the left background. The 1200 was one of six locomotives acquired from the Espee when the L&D began operations on 16 March 1987. It was built in January 1964 as Cotton Belt 1062 and was renumbered 2250 the next year. Ex-Santa Fe 2622 was one of two CF7's that the L&D had just purchased. It would become L&D 1501 and assumed the name CITY OF NEW IBERIA from the 1200 after that loco was sent to switch at the Sohio coke calcining plant in Lake Charles in February 1988.

L&D Power
Title:  L&D Power
Description:  Louisiana & Delta SW1200 number 1200, the railroad's first CITY OF NEW IBERIA, was on the tie-up track at New Iberia while recently-delivered ex-Santa Fe CF7's 2622 and 2618 were parked next to the scale house. The 2622 would become L&D 1501 and inherit the 1200's name, while the 2618 would become L&D 1500 PATOUTVILLE.
