BATON ROUGE, LA, Sept. 12, 2014 (The Advocate ) -West Feliciana Parish President Kevin Couhig says the acquisition, and pending recommissioning, of 22 miles of unused railroad track by the parent company of a pulp and paper mill near St. Francisville will be a major economic boost for the area.

Geaux Geaux Railroad LLC, a subsidiary of Amzak Capital Management, has completed acquisition of the "Zee" railroad line from Illinois Central/Canadian National Railroad, Couhig announced Monday.

The 22 miles of unused track of the Z-line runs from south of Baker through Zachary and Slaughter and ends at KPAQ Industries in southern West Feliciana Parish. Amzak Capital is the parent company of KPAQ Industries.
