Pearl River Train Station

This photo shows the Pearl River train station in the early years of the 20th century.

In the mid 1960's Pearl River had a small train station. Here are two pictures from the St.Tammany Rails Page of the AlphaRails.net website. Click on the images to make them larger. 

"Evidently passenger trains or some sort once stopped in Pearl River, judging from the small covered waiting area." Photo taken by Chuck Graham in August, 1965

"The other end of the station has what looks to have been a freight room. Now it's likely used for maintenance of way and signal storage." Photo taken by Larry Tuttle in August of 1967.
