||Shore Line Local
||The southward ICG Shore Line District local is parked on the main line in the P&W Industries scrap yard, just north of the former Covington depot. After the train arrived in Covington and did all of its switching, it would usually tie-up here, ready to depart for Bogalusa the next morning. By the time the crew parked their train, a railroad station wagon would be waiting to bring them back to Bogalusa; and the following morning, they would return to Covington and take the train back to Bogalusa. The local's locomotive had to use the wye at the end of the line to run around its train; so if the local arrived with its engine running long-hood forward, it would depart this way too.
