    I think I have to take the CONO and eastern SL this fall, if I can travel at all. They may go away permanently, or every spring, at this rate. Interesting that the Crescent nearly always operates... Taller bridge? NOLA is doomed by sea level rise and subsidence so I really should visit it sooner not later...

    The Crescent does not cross a flood spillway on a rickety old wood trestle with inadequate base for the posts on which the track deck sits.
