Eastbound Run-Through Train
Title:  Eastbound Run-Through Train
Description:  Six engines representing five models and three railroads were on this eastbound train operating over the Southern Railway’s New Orleans Terminal Co. subsidiary at Elysian Fields Avenue. This was a run-through train from the Southern Pacific at Houston to the Louisville & Nashville’s GENTILLY YARD in New Orleans. There, a part of the train would continue on to Birmingham while the rest would head for Jacksonville via the Seaboard Coast Line. The locomotives were SP GP35 6631, SSW GP20 4035, SSW GP30 5009, SP U25B 6717, L&N GP40 3002 and L&N GP40 3022. (approximate date of photo)

SP Geeps
Title:  SP Geeps
Description:  Southern Pacific GP35's 6631 and 6577 were tied up across the SUNSET ROUTE main line from the Baldwin depot. The two geeps were assigned to the Cypremort and Bayou Sale branch locals, and this would be the last day those branches would be operated by the Espee. Three days later -- on Monday 16 March -- the Louisiana & Delta acquired ownership of several former Espee branches, including those two. The L&D also got the Baldwin depot, but after a few years it was replaced with a modular building and moved to Patoutville, Louisiana.

SP GP35 6631
Title:  SP GP35 6631
Description:  SP GP35 6631 was parked at Baldwin, Louisiana assigned to work one of the two branch line locals that were based there. It was a Friday and it would be the last time the SP worked those branches, as the following Monday the Louisiana & Delta took over. The "5 CAB" lettering indicates that the cab has been modified to accomodate the entire crew on cabooseless trains.
