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.
Tell us about your T & P memories....your travels, your life along the railway, anything you can recall.
