ICG Mays Yard
Title:  ICG Mays Yard
Description:  The Illinois Central only owned 10 U33C's, units 5050-5059 built in 1968. The 5055 was wrecked and retired in 1969, so here were one-third of the existing fleet - the 5058, 5054 and 5050 - together at Mays Yard with former GM&O SD40 914. The three GE's were retired in 1984 and sold for scrap, but the 914 survived much longer as ICG and then IC 6063.

ICG Grain Train (1)
Title:  ICG Grain Train (1)
Description:  Illnois Cenral Gulf GP10 8216, SD40 6056 and U33C 5058 were on a southbound grain train crossing the bridge across Pass Manchac, Louisiana. The new concrete structure was completed in 1972 and replaced the wooden trestle next to it. The train will have to reverse direction in Kenner, just west of MAYS YARD, to get to one of the grain elevators along the Mississippi River, so it has a caboose on each end. The 199510 is behind the engines and the 199596 is on the rear.

Grain Train
Title:  Grain Train
Description:  An interesting assortment of locomotives lead a southbound grain train across Pass Manchac, about 40 miles north of New Orleans. When this photo was taken, grain trains usually ran with a caboose on each end, as the power had to run around the train in Kenner before heading up the former Y&MV line to the elevators along the Mississippi River.
