IC 4-8-2 2451
Title:  IC 4-8-2 2451
Description:  Illinois Central 4-8-2 2451 had just passed through Government Yard and was about to cross South Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans. The train was unidentified, but it was probably No. 25 - the somewhat-misnamed SOUTHERN EXPRESS. No. 25 originated in Chicago at 12:20 A.M. and only made five stops util it got to Champaign, then it became an all-stops local and was scheduled into New Orleans at 11:30 A.M., after 35 hours on the road. This train was just a few minutes away from its destination at Union Station. Notice the green diamond emblem on the right side of the water tower. The 2451 had been built by Alco in 1926, was rebuilt by the railroad with a new boiler in 1945 and was scrapped in 1955. (approximate day)

IC Train 22
Title:  IC Train 22
Description:  Illinois Central train No. 22, the all-stops overnight local for Memphis, was nearing its 5:30 p.m. departure from Union Station in New Orleans behind 4-8-2 2451. The train could make up to 47 stops before its scheduled arrival in Memphis at 9:05 the next morning. On 26 April 1954 train No. 22 was replaced by New Orleans-Chicago train No. 4, the LOUISIANE, which left at 11:00 a.m. The 2451 had been built by Alco in 1926, was rebuilt by the railroad with a new boiler in 1945 and was scrapped in 1955. The roof of Union Station can be seen in the right background. It was torn down in early 1954 to create a plaza in front of the new New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal. (approximate day)
