Remarks & Notes 
Amtrak's City of New Orleans eases into Switch Tender Jct in Jackson, Miss. after departing the station just out of sight. The eastbound KCS train in the distance will wait a little while longer as the engine crew on board AMTK train 59 and a CN Road Foreman of Engines places a worn out ex LMS CW40-8 in the lead due to loading issues with P42 66. Switch Tender will soon lose it's reputation as being an all manual junction between the IC/CN and KCS. New signals are seen in this view along with the Switch Tender himself who wasn't too thrilled about the idea.
