Default Port Allen train depot

Hey y'all,

Anybody have a truck sitting or going to Port Allen La.? Mine is sitting at a rail switching station 5 miles south of there and Port Allen is the last stop on the train. It of course has to get loaded on a truck and delivered to MS but wondering about the river and flooding. One would think they would either get it through there or move it to higher ground however.....

Just wonder if anybody else has a new ride sitting along the mighty Mississippi and if so are you concerned?

Wow, sure hope you get it soon. I'm not waiting on a truck, but we're all waiting to see what's going to happen, but I'm sure they have contingency plans for getting those vehicles delivered.

I just hope that you, your family & friends will be safe
The water is cresting at Memphis today, reports are that it should drop at a rate of a foot a week
They better let more water out of Lake Pontchartrain at nice controlled rate, so the flooding water has a place to go.

I do hope that they get your Ram up to some higher ground, they have opened I-40 eastbound, so trucking should begin flowing east of Ole Miss, putting less traffic on I-10

Those people that had the Rams built in Mexico, mostly the 2500 & 3500 Rams that were heading up to Canada are going to have to wait longer, the Canadian National Railway has stopped routing trains on the normal tracks that they use going along the Mississippi

This morning I got a bug up my butt and figured out who was who in the zoo in Port Allen.

I talked to the folks who catch it off the train (Inter Rail 225-267-4488) and the ones who are going to haul it on the transporter to MS (Hansen and Adkins 225-383-3350). Added the numbers incase others were interested. The data on the insight website was correct down to the parking spot.

The good, truck is there with no problems.

The bad, only two trucks there to go to Gulfport MS so he is waiting for a full load. Can't blame him with fuel costs these days.

The ugly, the lot is across the street from the MS river and this morning, the water was 2' below the top of the levee....
