The choo-choo is back!!!

New Orleans CityBusiness -- The Business Newspaper of Metropolitan New Orleans:
"Once again the train is chugging around City Park's 2-mile track.

Square D/Schneider Electric donated a new locomotive and ADA-accessible coach to the park.

The 50 'experts' called to take the inaugural ride at noon Wednesday are first-graders at Our Lady of Divine Providence School.

Entry is via the rear entrance to the Amusement Park off Stadium Drive.

'In many ways City Park is like the little engine that could. Despite what sometimes seems like insurmountable odds, the park keeps chugging forward. We are deeply appreciative of Square D’s generosity and their donation of the new locomotive and coach,' said Bob Becker, City Park CEO."

One of my earliest happiest moments was riding on this train. Must have been fifty years ago.
