Old Railroad Depots in Louisiana

While reading a book called Lost Louisiana I found these photos of two depots in Louisiana. One was the T&P Depot in Alexandria, Louisiana and the photo is from the 1930s. The second depot was from the town of Plaqumine, Louisiana and they were taken in the 1920s. One depot replaced the other and was also belonged to the T&P railroad. I have seen and photographed the newer depot at that location, but I did not know it had replaced a earlier structure on that site.


Old style wooden Timber Railroad bridge

Today during my travels I came across this wooden timber railroad bridge in east Baton Rouge on the Canadian National mainline (xICG, xIC). Most all the bridges have been converted to Concrete and steel so I was surprised to find this one still intact.
