Pictures 118 and 119.

Perley Thomas cars 915 and 923 on the Riverfront line, December 26, 2005.  The upper picture captures car 915 downbound, with a station stop behind it.  We can see the freight tracks to our left.  The lower picture shows car 923, also downbound, at stop number 9 John Churchill Chase, with the freight tracks now to our right.  This stop, originally intended to serve the Convention Center and the cruise ship terminal, has never been opened to the public, because of security concerns by the Port of New Orleans.  Nevertheless, upbound cars operate past it with no passengers, in order to get to the switches that allow them to reverse direction for the return trip downbound.
