Union Pacifc train ILBNO comes to a stop at Frenchman Street on Norflok Southern's Back Belt trackage         
Typically, a fleet of eastbound and northbound trains get turned loose on the NS Back Belt after the 07:10 departure of Amtrak's CRESCENT, and this morning was no exception. After waiting on the returning CSX and NS transfer runs, UP train ILBNO grinds to a halt at Frenchman Street as it waits for the AN-41 to get out of the way. The ILBNO (Intermodal - Long Beach, Ca., to New Orleans, La.) is actually a run-trough intermodal train to the CSX, contrary to what its name suggests. (In the past, it carried New Orleans intermodal traffic, but no more.) The ILBNO, which carries international cargo, becomes CSX train Q192 to Atlanta, Georgia.
