The railroad was the New Orleans, Fort Jackson. Grand Isle Railroad. It was active from 1888 to 1911. It later changed to the New Orleans Southern and Grand Isle Railroad.

Subject: [LAORLEAN] 45 miles below the city
I found a newspaper item from the Times Picayune 1903 for the sale of
"Randazzo Orange and Truck Farm" stated it was "situated about 45 miles below
the city, fronting the Mississippi River and the N. O., F. J and G. I
Okay I don't live in Louisiana and I have no clue what is below New
Orleans. Could anyone give me an idea what parish this property could have been
for sale in???
Also does anyone know anything of the railroads mentioned in the above?
