Picture 437.

The end of track at Cemeteries Terminal, Canal and City Park Ave., August 7, 2003.  The Canal Street neutral ground has always been narrower from Anthony St. to City Park Ave.  This section, like all the rest of the street, has seen the neutral ground narrowed since the track removal in 1964.  There is no longer room for a double track terminal.  Between the switch seen in this picture and Anthony St., the inbound track runs in the left traffic lane, sharing it with automobile traffic.  The switch is an example of something new in New Orleans track: a double-point streetcar-type switch.  The bumper is also an unusual detail in New Orleans streetcar practice.
