DeQuincy, north of Lake Charles, has a colorful history as a railroad town. In 1897, with a crossing of rails from two company lines, the town of DeQuincy was formed. Today, you can visit the DeQuincy Railroad Museum which houses a 1913 steam locomotive, passenger car, caboose and other railroad artifacts. People in DeQuincy take great pride in their history as a railroad town, and nearly every major festival celebrates railroad heritage. The major festival held in DeQuincy is the Louisiana Railroad Days Festival held each April with live music, model railroaders and other railroad themed events such as the canine caboose dog pageant or the dining car cook-off! During the holidays, the festive KCS Holiday Express Train with candy cane stripes on its engine arrives at the DeQuincy Railroad Museum with Santa and his elves greeting visitors, usually preceding the lighting ceremony and Taste of the Holidays home tour.
