We left Lafayette in bad weather hunting more for crawfish than trains, which we found nearby, and set our sights on the streetrunning at Gretna on the New Orleans and Gulf Coast. There was trackwork near the streetrunning and nothing was running over it -- bad luck -- but we did find two working on the line.
Near the Mississippi-Alabama border along the CSX at the junction of the Mississippi Export.
The single track CSX line through Pascagoula is busy, but I was only there to see it at night.

We started the day at Pascagoula, Mississippi, catching a single CSX out the window of the hotel in torrential rain before going off to explore, and quickly find, the Mississippi Export Rail. We were lucky enough to catch it on the causeway near the company's shops in Moss Point before proceeding on to the port city of Mobile Alabama to check out another shortline, the Alabama Export, where we found two G&W units switching and a single pre-G&W painted unit elusively switching in a spot we simply couldn't shoot.
Moss Point, Mississippi
Home of the Mississippi Export Rail shops just north of Pascagoula, there is some almost street-running and an easily viewed curved causeway.
We caught the Mississippi Export on the causeway at Moss Point heading south. Handheld shot.

We gave short chase to the Mississippi Export as it headed south to the interchange. We were heading east, not south, and had to break off after this one.
