New Orleans City Park (Images of America)

2006 - Train Runs Again


"In many ways City Park is like the little engine that could” said New Orleans City Business when reporting the story in 2006 of the inaugural post-Katrina train ride by first-graders of Our Lady of Divine Providence School along the two-and-one-half mile route. The engine and ADA-accessible coach was donated by Square D/Schneider Electric.
