South Shore Railway

jgc_state The South Shore was a gravel pit operation north of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on the east bank of the Mississippi River. The pit connected to the Kansas City Southern. Both the South Shore and the Louisiana Midland were owned by H.H. Holloway, Jr. of Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Given the connection, motive power was often exchanged between the two roads.
