I did some lurking in DeRidder, LA today and found some of the older railroad related things that city had to offer. I failed to get a photo of the KCS brick depot now a chamber of commerce office and their stainless steel caboose adjacent to the main track a few blocks up the KCS main.

SD60 and old time gated crossing for the KCS and TIBR diamond (Timber Rock)ex-ATSF Oakdale Sub.

Tommy, that gate it something to see at night with all those red lights illuminated. There's a light bulb in the switch target light at top also.
