Freight Train and Diamond Crossing

A Kansas City Southern engine reaches the Canal St. walkway in this view.  It is traveling very slowly, and making a lot of noise.  The diamond crossing closer to the camera is where the Canal/City Park Streetcar for French Market intersects with the Riverfront Streetcar for Thalia St. 

Not far from the foot of Canal St. a venerable ferry takes passengers and autos to and from Algiers on the other side of the Mississippi.
