From my February 2006 NOLA mission trip.

What a great place to visit.  The Reserve LA base camp is across the street from the base is a CN/Illinois Central Railroad crew change point.

The view out the dinning room window.

Note the CN/IC GP38-2.

The rest of the shots.

IC SD70 at the crossing.

A set of IC EMD SD70s waiting their next call.


The next day found this pair, an IC EMD SD70 (1019) and a former Wisconsin Central SD40-2 (6941)

Both the WC and the IC have been purchased by the Canadian National Railroad.


A great treat on Thursday morning.  BNSF run through grain train with two GE C44-9w

The local pair that day included this CD SD40-2 in the North American scheme.

Here is CN C44-9w 2706

The BNSF grain train accelerates with its new crew.
