Lake Providence to Tallulah


GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

The southern end of this ex-Missouri Pacific abandoned trackage, shown here, starts at a wye at Talla Bena. The eastern track of the wye heads to the lock and dam at the nearby Mississippi River; the tracks to the south connect with Union Pacific at Tallulah, LA. The Delta Southern currently owns the line and stores a few of its CF7s on the northeastern quadrant of the wye, just out of view to the right. Photo by Greg Harrison.

The correct spelling is "Tallulah". God bless.

What can you tell us about the Railroad between Monroe and Natchez, Miss? When I was very small the DOODLEBUG ran it between Monroe or Sterlington and Natchez, Miss. I don't remember riding it but remember the whistle blowing and watching it pass as well as a couple of older friends running to get on board as it slowed for our crossing at Lee Bayou, 3 miles nort of Clayton. Thanks

I travel this area often for work purposes. This Railroad is being completely restored from Tallulah to Magee, Arkansas. Very nice to see one coming back to life.
