A pair of former Illinois Central passenger cars were someone's vacation home amid the pine trees in St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana. GENERAL JACKSON is a 1-compartment/1-drawing-room/3-double-bedroom/taven/lounge car built by Pullman-Standard in April 1942 for the PANAMA LIMITED, while baggage car 755 was built by Pullman in 1921. The cars were located along the now-abandoned ICG (ex-GM&O) Shore Line District, between Mandeville and Abita Spring, Louisiana, and were subsequently purchased by Iowa Pacific Holdings.
