This branch line served local farming areas in southwest Louisiana. Judging by how little of the line remains, it has been abandoned for a while, most likely more than 20 years. A Rand McNally railroad atlas shows the line to be active as of 1982.

I remember this RR being hardly used in the 1970,s. I believe much of the track was still on the line thru the 1980,s there devenintly was track still renaining in 1992 when i followed the line from L.C. to L.A. , I was planning a small HO scale model RR. I had a track plan and laid the rail on a 4/8 sheet of plywood I then started a new part of my life and never did any scenery or scructures , I plan on studying more about this line to make a combo, proto.and freelance MR. Thanks for this information. If anyone worked or know someone who worked on or around this RR please contact me by e-mail
