The Louisiana Steam Train Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization run entirely by volunteers. Our mission is to educate and entertain the public about railroading in general and steam railroading in particular. LASTA is supported entirely by gifts, donations, and labor of the community and other organizations to which it is eternally grateful.
