When the KCS Holiday Express rolled into Coushatta Tuesday afternoon the whole town turned out. The line waiting to tour the special train formed early and stretched along the tracks behind the old depot, down to Ringgold Avenue, then across the tracks and back along Front Street all the way to Alonzo.
It was like a family reunion even better. The Journal met many old and familiar faces. And we were privileged to meet many new ones too. In our Wednesday issue we published the 11 month old who was first in line, brought by his mom and whole family to view the Holiday Express.
Take a look at our photo-essay of the event. There are a bunch of them, so give them time to load.
