I put this on the Passenger Consist group earlier. Thought I might put it here as well. Any records showing what equipment was used for this train?

This is an ad that appeared in the Sept. 18, 1960 Huntsville Times for a chartered run from Birmingham to New Orleans for the 1961 Sugar Bowl. Would anyone have a consist of the equipment used? I would imagine mostly older heavyweight Pullmans would have been used for the run.

Looking up the '61 Sugar Bowl, it appeared it was the Ole Miss Rebels in that game taking on the Rice Owls. The Rebels would take home the victory 14-6.

Thanks,

Consist would probably have  been in divisional records, AGS and NO&NE, and are long gone.
