Louisiana, Texas & Pacific Railroad

The Louisiana, Texas & Pacific Railroad is the 7.5" gauge outdoor riding railway of Gordon Payne and family. Located in southeast Louisiana, the Paynes' backyard pike features 850 feet of mainline, nine operating turnouts, under-roof car storage, a 400-foot trestle, return loops on either end of the run, and plans for a signal system to control operation on the long single track main. Current LT&P rolling stock, all scratch-built on site, pays tribute to favorite New Orleans area fallen flags Southern Railway and the Southern Pacific Lines. If you share an interest in scale riding trains, contact the webmaster of HawkinsRails and he'll put you in touch with Gordon.
