Pictures 5 through 10.

These photos record the arrival of car 924 back to New Orleans from Atlanta.  Notice the red livery which it wore there, together with a letterboard sign reading “Old Alabama & Loyd St.”  In the top picture, we see 924 on the flatbed truck being delivered to the corner of Carrollton and Claiborne.  In the second picture, we watch as the car is lifted off of the truck and carefully placed on the track (third picture).  The fourth picture shows car 905 making the tow to Carrollton Station.  Apparently, the shop crew wanted to have 924 on the Willow Street side of the station, so 905 reversed direction at Willow and pushed 924 up Willow Street (fifth picture) and into the barn (bottom picture). — Photos by Earl Hampton
