T&P 4-6-2 704
Title:  T&P 4-6-2 704
Description:  Texas & Pacific P-1-r class Pacific 704 was outside the Texas Pacific-Missouri Pacific Terminal Railroad of New Orleans' engine house at RACE STREET YARD. The loco had been built by Baldwin (51666) in April 1919 as T&P 604 and then almost immediately renumbered 704. It was modernized with Boxpok main drivers, roller bearings, a larger tender and other improvements in April 1944, and received running board skirts in July 1949. Half of the T&P's 22 Pacifics received blue-and-gray EAGLE paint jobs; but only two, the 704 and 706, were fitted with skirts. The engine was retired in March 1952, the engine house was razed around 1967 and Race Street Yard was removed in 1984. (approximate date of photo)

L&N 4-6-2 233
Title:  L&N 4-6-2 233
Description:  It's almost 5:15 p.m. and Louisville & Nashville K4 Pacific 233 is ready to pull out of the train shed at the railroad’s Canal Street Station with No. 12 - the commuter train to Ocean Springs, Mississippi. The 233 was built at the L&N's South Louisville Shops in 1915 and retired on 16 October 1951. The train was officially dieselized - with FP7A's - on 27 July 1951 and all L&N passenger trains moved to New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal on 16 April 1954. Nos. 9 and 12 made their last run on 6 May 1964. (approximate date)

L&N No. 7
Title:  L&N No. 7
Description:  It's mid-afternoon and Louisville & Nashville J3 Mikado 1518 is pulling train No. 7 -- the all-stops local from Montgomery -- along the Mississippi River wharves and into the railroad's Canal Street Station. The 1518 was one of 93 USRA (United States Railroad Administration) light 2-8-2's on the L&N and the first of 65 built for the railroad by Alco between 1920 and 1923. J3's were the heaviest steam locomotives operated into New Orleans by the L&N. The 1518 was retired on 29 January 1952. Train No. 7 was officially dieselized -- with FP7A's -- on 27 July 1951 and was discontinued in September 1953. (approximate date)

BISSO 0-6-0 No. 1
Title:  BISSO 0-6-0 No. 1
Description:  New Orleans Coal & Bisso Towboat Co. (or Bisso for short) 0-6-0 number 1 - and its sibling number 2 - were built by Alco-Richmond in June 1907 (42928-42929) as Trinity & Brazos Valley 75 and 76, for use at Galveston. Following bankruptcy in 1914, the T&BV lost its access to Galveston from Fort Worth over the Santa Fe, so the two switchers became redundant. They were sold to the Barry Equipment Co. in 1917 and then moved on to the Texas Pacific-Missouri Pacific Railroad of New Orleans (TPMPT) where they were renumbered 1 and 2.

Replaced by assorted Alco diesels, the Nos. 1 and 2 were sold to Bisso around 1950. Besides operating towboats and ferries, Bisso provided coal for coal-burning vessels - including its own - and used its locomotives to move hopper cars from a 2-track yard along the New Orleans Public Belt – as shown here - up the levee to its coal handling facility along the Mississippi River.

Bisso’s coaling operation ended around 1955, and with it, the need for any locomotives. No. 1 disappeared, and was probably scrapped; but No. 2 remained on Bisso property until 2010, when it was donated to the Louisiana Railway Heritage Trust. Up until being repainted around 1980, No. 2 was still lettered for the TPMPT on its tender and forward sand dome, so it may have never been used by Bisso. (month and year are known, but not the day)

SP (T&NO) 2-6-0 491
Title:  SP (T&NO) 2-6-0 491
Description:  Southern Pacific (Texas & New Orleans) Mogul 491 was parked at the railroad’s Algiers Shops, just across the Mississippi River from New Orleans. This loco was one of 15 2-6-0s built by Baldwin in 1909 for the Cananea, Rio Yaqui y Pacifico in Mexico as their 515-529. In 1912, this railroad became the Sud Pacifico de Mexico and three of these locomotives passed on to the SPdeM, while six went to the Arizona Eastern and six to the Houston & Texas Central. The 491 was built as CRYyP 517, became H&TC 560 in 1912, then T&NO 560 in 1934 and was renumbered T&NO 491 on 15 May 1950. The loco shows some evidence of its recent renumbering, and it was the last of this group to be retired. It was scrapped at Houston on 26 October 1953.

SP (T&NO) 0-6-0 100
Title:  SP (T&NO) 0-6-0 100
Description:  Southern Pacific (Texas & New Orleans) 0-6-0 100 was built in May 1911 as Baldwin serial No. 36510. This little locomotive was one of 21 S-8 class switchers built for the T&NO between 1906 and 1911. It was retired on 1 June 1950, just about the time this photo was taken at ALGIERS YARD, and sold for scrap to Commercial Metals in Houston on 19 July; so this may be the very last time this loco was ever photographed! The 100 was among the last survivors of this class on the T&NO; but there had also been 73 S-8's on the Espee's Pacific Lines, and a few of these outlasted their T&NO counterparts. (approximate date)

SP (T&NO) 0-8-0 182
Title:  SP (T&NO) 0-8-0 182
Description:  While the 0-8-0 was a pretty common locomotive type, the Southern Pacific Lines only owned 27 of these: 15 on the SP proper and 12 on the Texas & New Orleans. T&NO 175-186 were built at the railroad's Houston Shops between 1930 and 1936, utilizing boiler sections from retired MM-1 class 2-6-6-2's 900-911. All were renumbered 850-861 in 1950, so their original numbers could be assigned to a mixture of Alco RSD5’s and Baldwin AS616's built in 1952 and '53. One common assignment in the New Orleans area was the long-distance transfer runs from AVONDALE YARD, at the west end of the HUEY P. LONG BRIDGE, to the L&N and the Southern on the eastern side of the city. The 182 was photographed at ALGIERS YARD in the summer of 1950. It had been built in March 1931, was renumbered 857 on 29 September 1950 and was scrapped on 24 February 1956. (approximate date)

Title:  SP (T&NO) 2-6-0 468
Description:  This Mogul was one of a group of 15 2-6-0's built by Baldwin in June 1912 as Southern Pacific Lines 500-514. In December 1949, the entire group was renumbered 685-699; and in May 1950 they were renumbered again, to 460-474. Here at ALGIERS YARD, the 468 shows evidence of its most recent renumbering. All of these locomotives lasted for at least 40 years, being retired between June 1952 and January 1957. This loco was sold to Houston Compressed Steel on 2 February 1955. (approximate date)

NOPB Baldwin 8DE900/1 32
Title:  NOPB Baldwin 8DE900/1 32
Description:  New Orleans Public Belt 32 was one of three 900-horsepower Baldwin model 8DE900/1 built as NOPB 31-33 in December 1937 at a cost of $89,870 each. (The NOPB's next three diesels, model VO660's bought in 1941-42, only cost $61,771 each.) These were the first Baldwin diesel-electric locomotives built specifically for a customer, and not as test beds or demonstrators. Here the 33 was heading upriver by the Douglas Public Service BLOCK Y WAREHOUSE at Iberville Street. All three of these were retired in 1969 and scrapped by Southern Scrap Materials in New Orleans in 1970. (approximate date)

Washington-Western 210
Title:  Washington-Western 210
Description:  The Washington-Western Railroad was chartered by the Green Brothers Gravel Co. in 1940 to serve its gravel pit at Jenkins, Louisiana. This was along the Gulf Mobile & Ohio's Bogue Chitto Branch in Washington Parish, just south of the Parish Seat at Franklinton. This 0-6-0 was built by Alco-Brooks under serial no. 52259 in November 1922 as Illinois Central 210, and went to the Washington-Western in November 1954. This pit closed in 1966, so the W-W moved a pit at Clifton, about eight miles north of here; but that operation used diesels.

Title:  Willis 4-6-0 No. 200
Description:  The Willis Shortline Railroad Co. served a sand and gravel pit owned by Jerry Willis at Enon, in Washington Parish, Louisiana and was located along the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio's Bogue Chitto District. This 4-6-0 was built by Baldwin in August 1889 as Texas & Pacific class D-5 number 200. It was sold to the Cinclare Central Plantation at Brusly, in West Baton Rouge Parish, where it was used to haul sugar cane trains over the T&P's Port Allen Branch. Cinclare replaced the 200 with a used 44-ton General Electric center-cab diesel-electric loco, and the Ten Wheeler was sold to the Willis Shortline in 1955. It was last used around 1963 and subsequently scrapped. (approximate date off photo)

MP Meet
Title:  MP Meet
Description:  Shortly before they were discontinued on 11 March 1965, the Missouri Pacific’s eastbound (on the left) and westbound ORLEANEANS met at Eunice, Louisiana. These were the day trains between New Orleans and Houston, and should have met at Elton, 20 miles west of here; so the westbound train was running about 45 minutes late. By this time there was no longer any food service available on these trains, but passengers could order box lunches from the conductor. The track in the foreground was the Rock Island’s line from Eunice to Alexandria, and was its connection with the Southern Pacific off to the right. Up until 1943 Eunice was also served by a branch of the Texas & Pacific. (approximate date of photo)
