1912 Louisiana Railroad Branches

 Remember, this is "as reported" by a 1912 periodical.

Texas & Pacific RR
Above is a bit confusing.
The Simmesport Branch (top) began in Bunkie and went east to Junction.
There it spit into the Marksville Branch and the Simmesport Branch, each 
going to their namesakes.
The branch would be continued north to Simmesport.

The Napoleonville Branch exited the T&P RR Main
at Evans, or what is called McCall, today.
It dove south down the Lafourch Valley to Elm Hall and Napoleonville 
Later it would cross the bayou and go south, visiting the plantations, to "East Thibodaux. 
There was a branch from Donaldsonville that went south to East Thibodaux.
The Napoleonville would assume those rails when the Donaldsonville route was abandoned.


I'm assuming this branch began at Addis (listed south to north)

This is a small matter, but, there was a "Concordia" and a "Ferriday:"
I've always been under the impression that the town of Concordia was later named Ferriday.
The N.O.& N.W. RR was incorporated into, or was a part of the Iron Mountain which
would eventually be owned by the Missouri Pacific, the owner of the Texas & Pacific RR.
The Iron Mountain connection was at Clayton, La.
I almost missed this one.
The Indian Village Branch was at Plaquemine on the Texas & Pacific RR.
It followed the bayou west to Indian Villiage and a bit beyond.

 T&P RR Down the Bayou LaFourche  Valley

This line basically followed present US 190

The Crowley Branch went south from Eunice.

Below: The railroad crossed the Mississippi on a Missouri Pacific ferry at 
On the east bank the railroad would have been Edenborn's 
Louisiana Railway & Navigation Company.
Notice the town name "Edenborn". 
It would be renamed "Gonzales".

 New Iberia & Northern RR
South from Port Barre.

Notice the absence of "Crowley above.
In 1915, the Texas & Pacific bought the "OG".

Now I have my 2016 destinations. Stay tuned.
