Southern No. 58
Title:  Southern No. 58
Description:  A late-running Southern Railway No. 58, the New Orleans-Meridian local, was entering the siding at Slidell during a very unusual south Louisiana snowfall. The train was running with GP38 2796 and GP30 2528, and was here to meet piggyback train No. 219. The track on the other side of the 2796 was the south leg of the Slidell wye. The wye's tail track served the American Creosote Works plant, which later became an EPA Superfund site. The wye was subsequently removed.
