Grain Train Editors Pick! Contributor's Pick!       
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.
