Louisiana & North Western engine 46 at Gibsland, LA

I knew time was running out for the old Louisiana & North Western F units so I made a habit of stopping at Gibsland, LA on my occasional trips between Dallas and North Carolina. These pictures were taken on April 14, 1994. F7 engine 46 was built for the SP as their engine 6378. It came to the L&NW in June 1969.
