L&N Pacific 269         
Preceded by a flagman, Louisville & Nashville K-5 class Pacific 269 was rolling out of the railroad's trainshed and across Canal Street in New Orleans. The loco has just uncoupled from a southbound passenger train and was heading to the roundhouse at Julia Street Yard. The automobiles behind the flagman had just gotten off of a ferry boat from the west side of the Mississippi River, and the walkway above the loco provided pedestrian access to the ferry. The railroad closed Canal Street Station and the Julia Street roundhouse when its passenger trains moved to New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal in April 1954. (approximate day of photo)
