It’s not a freight train but Y&MV photos from this time period are hard to find.  This is northbound train 36 near Baton Rouge.  In 1928, train 36 ran between New Orleans and Baton Rouge.  Sometime by 1929, it was a through train from New Orleans to Greenville, MS.  There were several changed made to the passenger schedules between 1928 and 1929.  July 28, 1932.
