LSU Libraries Digital Collection

About this collection

 

The scene of comings and goings in small towns and large across Louisiana and a hub for their commerce, train stations and railroad depots were at the crossroads of community social and economic life.  This collection is comprised of images of 129 stations in the state from Houma to Bastrop and points in between, and dates from 1905 to 1984, reflecting the heyday of rail travel to its decline.  Railroads represented in the collection include the Illinois Central, Kansas City Southern, Louisiana and Arkansas, Missouri Pacific, Santa Fe, Southern Pacific, Texas and New Orleans, and Texas and Pacific, among others.
