Pictures 68 and 69.

When the line was double tracked, the storage yard at the foot of Canal Street (“Canal Yard”) was removed, and the new Canal Station stop was built there.  A small facility was set up at the foot of Louisiana Ave.  The upper picture here shows the “new” cars 456 and 455 stored there, awaiting the resumption of Riverfront service.  The lower picture shows the 455 being moved down to the line for operation, towed by a little tractor-rail vehicle. — Photos by Earl Hampton
