I mentioned in last week’s post that I might republish a few “reruns”, photos that I like that were posted in the earlier days of this blog. I’ll start that today with the post below, originally published in March of 2018.
I thought I’d start posting a few photographs I took back in the 1970s. I’ll start today with this one taken at the former federal General Services Administration (GSA) supply depot that was in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This was a significant supply depot for many years, even having its own steam locomotive to switch and spot the freight cars. But after use of this depot began to wind down, a large chunk of it was eventually turned over to the BREC park commission in Baton Rouge. This photo shows one of the rail served warehouses that were in the facility. A few still survive to this day.
