Illinois Central #3 "The Louisiane"
Title:  Illinois Central #3 "The Louisiane"
Description:  Illinois Central #3 "The Louisiane" heads through Sardis on a hot summer morning in 1952. E8(A) #4018 was about two years old, having arrived 6/1950. It was the lowest #d E8 on the IC and was scrapped by Amtrak about 1980. Sardis, an hour from Memphis, TN, is home to Sardis Lake and Sardis Dam, which at the time was the largest earth-filled dam in the world. "The Louisiane" was one of IC's secondary trains, operating with standard heavy-weight cars, but still offered Pullman and dining service. It ran on the Chicago-New Orleans Main Line and would have hit Sardis at 9:14 AM.
