The bridge was near the Metairie Cemetery, so the pin is in the correct location. 1939 map shows the railroad simply as "Southern".
There are also a couple of other potential locations further down Pontchartrain Expressway where RRs cross.
New Basin Canal was filled in during the late 1940s. Pontchartrain Expressway is located over part of it; much of the rest is a green space. I moved the coordinates to the RR crossing of Pontchartrain Expressway, since that appears to be the most likely location.
