The first of the year there has been tie replacment, about every third tie has been replaced along a strech of track through Baker and Zachary cities. no bridge work yet that i can see. There is a roomer that there will be a dinner train might be in the works . I seriously doubt.at least not on the 1.2 miles of track. The rails were torn up past Ethel going to Mississippi by CN before the sale.
