The Old Engine from Audubon Park
~ ~ ~
With many, many thanks to Blair Kullman (Blair on the Air), who shared the photos below of refurbished Engine 745. The photos were taken at Union Passenger Station in March, 2005. As the photo on the very bottom shows, many New Orleanians have fond childhood memories of climbing aboard this engine!
Blair, also, included a link to the website where you can read a lot more about it...more pictures, too: Louisiana Steam Train Association - based in New Orleans and formed for the purpose of restoring Engine 745. Click on the link above to visit and learn about the restoration, schedule of appearances and the search for a permanent home.
And, while you're out and about on the web, be sure to stop by Blair's site and drop him a note of thanks for sharing these great pictures!
