LD1990110010 - Louisiana & Delta, New Iberia, LA, 11/1990
In the early 1990s the pipe business was booming for the Louisiana gas & oil industry. Louisiana & Delta had several oil & gas customers, the largest and busiest of which was Bayou Pipe Coating. Pipe cars were in desperate need by LDRR. What pipe cars the Southern Pacific had were tied up with "their' business so LDRR went on the hunt to find some cars. Coming up with more than a hundred 89 foot former auto rack flats slated for scrapping, we acquired the cars and equipped them, at the shops in New Iberia, for pipe service.
