MP GP38-2 910
Title:  MP GP38-2 910
Description:  Part of the "new" Louisville & Nashville line that was built from N.E. Tower to the Mississippi River as a part of the New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal project literally ran through back yards. Missouri Pacific GP38-2's 910, 866 and 947 were heading from the L&N's Gentilly Yard to the MP's Race Street Yard at the intersection of North Dorgenois (on the left) and Montegut streets. The Southern Railway's Oliver Yard was two streets over on the left, and the Southern eventually acquired all of the land between its yard and the L&N track to expand its intermodal facility. This train had an L&N crew, and its caboose was Seaboard Coast Line 0754.
