Remarks & Notes 
Carving out a living in the Louisiana woods. Tremont & Gulf #30 blows for a rural crossing in woods of Northern Louisiana, as she leads a local mixed freight northeast toward Monroe. The Tremont & Gulf Railway made its living as a short line, operating in Louisiana, hauling various types of forest products to the mills and to market. The line typically rostered and eclectic mix of 5-8 steam locomotives and at its peak, capture the attention of famed rail photographer and author, Lucius Beebe, who published coverage of the line in Mixed Train Daily. The little re-creation shown here was actually staged at the County Road 386 crossing on the Texas State Railroad, just east of Palestine.
