    Parallel to the streetcar tracks along the riverfront are train tracks. Trains do run on these tracks (very noisily I might add). The train that we saw was a freight train.

    AMTRAK does run to New Orleans daily to the Union Passenger Terminal at 1001 Loyola Ave.

    The best way is have a friend take you, but I would go by train if I could. The train station is right downtown. The airport is in Kenner and a 45 minute drive away.
