Pictures 429 through 432.

Construction in progress on Canal Street, March, 2003.  These pictures were taken from the intersection of Tonti and Canal Streets.  The top picture is looking in toward Claiborne Ave., and the other three pictures look out.  (Tonti Street is seven blocks out from Claiborne, between Galvez St. and Broad Ave.)  The switch in the foreground of the third and fourth pictures is one of the turnback crossover switches, used in emergencies such as the line being blocked somewhere.  Note the concrete around the rails in the grassy neutral ground; this is a new track construction feature for New Orleans.
