Vivian is all purplie pink in Redbud blossoms. I can't help but think about what it must have been like in 1921, when the station was newly erected, and travelers disembarked the train this time of year. Would the trees be the first thing they noticed? They certainly would be hard to miss.

Or maybe passengers would be too busy admiring the beauty of Vivian Railroad Station, with her beautiful red brick face and the red tiled roof, and once inside, the many windows allowing the light to paint the floors.
While passenger trains no longer stop at Vivian, the station is still a romantic spot to enjoy as you travel Louisiana Highway 1. Just off the main highway at the head of Louisiana Avenue, Vivian Railroad Station awaits you. Be sure not to pass her by.
