LASTA History – 1997
Published by 745 on
June 29, 1997 – One of LASTA’s first acts after its incorporation as a 501(c)(3), was to create a plan of use for 745 once it had been restored. Our original idea was to run weekend trips on the New Orleans Public Belt Railroad (NOPB) from the foot of Canal Street to Carrolton and St. Charles (the Riverbend) with a brief stop at Audubon Park. A feasibility study was completed predicting more than adequate profitability for our planned use of 745.
