Picture 383.7.

When 958 pulled into Canal Station car barn for the last time in the early morning of May 31, 972 took over the remainder of the last run out to the cemeteries terminal.  It then returned inbound on Canal Street.  NOPSI crew were out turning off the power to the overhead wires behind the 972 as it worked its way inbound.  The photo shows the last car on Canal Street between Baronne and Carondelet.  When it reached the next block, there was a brief ceremony, and the car then switched over to the St. Charles track and proceeded out the St. Charles line.
