Title:  Fan Trip
Description:  This was the first excursion on the Port Bienville Railroad (PBVR), and it was sponsored by the Mississippi Transportation Museum. PBVR 1 was a 45-ton GE, serial number 13005, built as U.S.Army 7322 in April 1943 and later U.S.Navy 65-00505. Coach 1002 came from the Southern Railway, while the 1147 was a former Texas & Pacific divided coach leased from the Hartwell Railroad in Georgia. Unfortunately, excursions on the PBVR did not last for very long.
