This trip from Washington to New Orleans was originally supposed to be a one way positioning move prior to MOUNT VERNON's chartered participation in the "Railroad Revival Tour 2012" special train from New Orleans to Oakland. A week before the scheduled departure from Washington, we were informed that Railroad Revival Tour 2012 had been cancelled. We were greatly disappointed at the loss of revenue from the failed charter special train, but we quickly turned the one way positoning move into an owners and friends trip to the Big Easy and back to New York. Laissez les bons temps roulez!
