Abandoned Rails of
Built in 1888 by the American Car & Foundry Company, this was the personal passenger car of Jay Gould & family. Named the "Atalanta", it features two observation rooms, four state rooms, two baths, a butler's pantry, kitchen, dining room office, resplendent with elaborate decorations and fixtures. The car was moved to its current location in Jefferson, TX, in 1954. Photo by Dave Matthews, April 2008.
This former railroad bridge can be found on the southeast side of Jefferson, TX, crossing Big Cypress Bayou. The railroad line was relocated and a new bridge was built adjacent to this one (you can see the abutments of the new bridge in the bayou behind the abandoned bridge). The KCS still has regular service to Jefferson on the former Louisiana & Arkansas line. Photo by Dave Matthews, April 2008.
