Railroads around New Orleans, LA

Received the following via email from Kermit Geary, Jr.  Text, photos, and captions are his.

Finally caught a baby-Belle in Gulfport, MS on the way into New Orleans.  Getting access to tracks anywhere in New Orleans is very difficult...chain-link fences topped with concertina wire seem to grow and multiply over night. Did get some access in the Gentilly area and caught a UP powered train heading to the CSX yard. And hit two Belles on the way out of town in Shrewsbury section. Finally a fairly new Ferromex trailing at the big UP yard in Livonia, LA.

KCS 2954 at Gulfport, MS

UP 5123 and train at Gentilly, LA 

KCS 4100 at Shrewsbury, LA

FERROMEX 4072 at Livonia, LA
