Nearing the end of its trek from Los Angeles to New Orleans, Espee’s train no. 6 – the eastbound Argonaut – drops down the Huey Long Bridge behind T&NO F7A 352, boiler-equipped F7B’s 541 and 545, and passenger GP9 280.

SP train No. 6, the eastbound ARGONAUT, was rolling through the Illinois Central’s Government Yard and across South Claiborne Avenue on its way into Union Station. The 211 had been built a year earlier as the 205B, and was the last of the T&NO’s 12 PA1’s. When these units were renumbered, they also received a number on their noses. IC SW1 9027 is on the left, outside the railroad’s Government Yard roundhouse. Most of the IC property here was acquired for the construction New Orleans Union Passenger Terminal and its related facilities.
