L&D 1501
Title:  L&D 1501
Description:  Louisiana & Delta CF7 1501 -- the CITY OF NEW IBERIA -- rests amid the lush vegetation at Avery Island, on the end of the railroad's Salt Mine Branch. The train was the second of two excursions operated by the L&D to celebrate its fifth anniversary. Behind the 1501 were flat car GVSR 8422 with a portable generator, ex-NYC sleeper-lounge LAUREL STREAM, ex-NYC sleeper-lounge-observation BONNIE BROOK, and L&D CF7 1500 PATOUTVILLE. The 1501 was built in November 1946 as ATSF F3A 19L, rebuilt by the Santa Fe into CF7 2622 in May 1972, and purchased by the L&D in December 1987. It was the second L&D unit with this name; the first one was SW1200 number 1200.
