New Orleans Great Northern Railroad

nogn_logoThe New Orleans Great Northern Railroad was incorporated in Louisiana and Mississippi in 1905 by the owners of the Great Southern Lumber Company -- builders of one of the largest sawmills in the country at the new town of Bogalusa, Louisiana. The NOGN bought the East Louisiana Railway in June of the same year, and was completed from Slidell to Jackson, Mississippi by 1910. Westward branchlines included lines from Rio to Tylertown and Slidell to Covington and Folsom. The Gulf, Mobile & Northern acquired control of the NOGN in 1929, and officially leased the road in 1933.
