I grew up in Shreveport and came from a family on my dad's side where all the males going back three generations worked for the TP in either Marshall, Texarkana or Shreveport. I grew up on the TP between Mineola and Alec in the 60's (and the old Plesant Hill branch), so the TP is in my blood and DNA. I now live outside of Dallas and spend a lot of time in Baton Rouge. I am slowly working on an o guage hi-rail layout roughly depicting the TP from Plaquemine to Addis and the docks at Port Allen.
