L&N Train No. 10
Title:  L&N Train No. 10
Description:  in 1951-52 the Louisville & Nashville constructed a temporary shoo-fly at Franklin Avenue, about midway between N.O.T. Tower (milepost 803.7) and NO&NE Tower (milepost 802.7) in New Orleans, so that an underpass could be built. Here local No. 10 was coming off of the north end of the temporary trackage and back onto the permanent alignment. It was passing a temporary approach signal for New Orleans Terminal Co. crossing. This train was powered by 4-6-2 234, one of 24 K-4 class Pacifics (216-239) constructed at the railroad's South Louisville Shops between 1914 and 1918. The 234 was built in 1917. New FP7 diesels officially replaced steam engines on local trains 7, 9, 10, and 12 on Friday 27 July 1951; and the 234 was retired less than three months later, on 16 October 1951. (approximate day)
