Here's the last one used by the T&P, built in the 1960s:

The previous one was an Art Deco-style one from the 1930s that was just demolished in the last 10-15 years:

The switch from the older depot to the newer one was largely prompted by the need to avoid the slow, time-consuming route required to reach the Art Deco depot near downtown Shreveport. Perhaps it was more expensive to maintain too.
