Louisiana Central Railroad Company Louisiana Central Right-of-Way

Here's where it all begins, at the mighty Mississippi River.  The Texas and Pacific Railway has a car ferry operation just down stream and interchanges with the Louisiana Central at Monterey.  The T&P also switches a couple riverfront industries, picking up loads heading westward.  Traffic has increased lately, as the T&P is delivering cars to the LC for forwarding on to the Illinois Central.  The IC interchange is at Willis and this provides a nice little shortcut around New Orleans, saving several days off the transit times of cars moving east-west and north.
