The Crescent Harbor is one of three remaining sleeper / lounge passenger cars built by Pullman for the Southern Railway's Southern Crescent passenger service. Delivered in 1949-50, this particular car plied the rails between New York City and New Orleans during the "golden days" of rail travel. Having been out-of-service since 1979, Crescent Harbor was recently returned to rail service through a major restoration project by WVRHS&M, from whom it received AAR reporting mark WATX 2351. Crescent Harbor's two sister cars, while they exist, require extensive work before they could become roadworthy.
