Crescent heading north
Title:  Crescent heading north
Description:  Crossing lake Ponchatrain, the northbound "Crescent" (train #20) about to make landfall at Slidell, LA. I had just dropped the wife off at NOUPT to catch this train home after attending the festivities of the first night of Mardi Gras 2011 the night before, and headed out to get this shot for her.

Of course, the Crescent at the station platform, then the DPU on the outgoing eastbound freight on the NS main line, and then the southbound freight out of Artesia, MS on the KCS main line approaching the diamond. Note: the trash from the Crescent has not been picked up off of the platform yet.
