Remarks & Notes 
Frequently, the New Orleans Public Belt Railway entertains various groups on board its business car "City of New Orleans" on trips to the top of the Huey P. Long Bridge. The train will back up the bridge and spend a few minutes at the superstructure, giving guests a view of the Mississippi River before heading back past Cotton Warehouse Yard along the riverfront in New Orleans on its way to the French Market Station at the French Quarter. Here, we see the train coming back down the bridge as it will soon pass parked Union Pacific train KCIAT (Intermodal -- City of Industry, Ca., to Atlanta, Ga.) with its usual Tropicana reefers on the rear. The restaurant in the foreground is Copeland's, a New Orleans institution. When I was a really young fella, my parents would take me there when I was "good", and I'd be treated to views of trains on the bridge as I ate. The restaurant has recently completed a renovation, as evidenced by the "NOW OPEN" sign. Not long after the NOPB train passed East Bridge Junction, the KCIAT was given permission to proceed over the Norfolk Southern's "Back Belt" line to CSX's Gentilly Yard in New Orleans.
