|Old Train Stations of New Orleans
|Until the Union Passenger Terminal was constructed in 1954, the major railroad lines
each had their own individual stations, though, a few shared a station with another
line. A person's destination or favorite rail line determined which station would
be used. I haven't been able to track down photos of all the stations, but I've
managed to find several, so I thought it was time to devote a page to them. Nancy
