I believe this to be the former CE&I, L&N, CSX looking south/west toward Henning at the crossing of country road E.3200 North Road. It was never a mainline. I believe it only to be an access route to the power plant, several grain silos and access for the coal mines near Broadland.
I hiked the line from Rossville to Henning often as a kid.
Do you have any pictures or information about Rossville Junction to Slidell? Please
