This postcard features a sepia toned image of a log train from the Finkbine Lumber Company in Wiggins, Mississippi on the railroad tracks beside a body of water. Logs are seen on the right side of the tracks as well as on the flat rail cars attached to the train. A thick puff of dark smoke is pictured coming from the smoke stack of the train and a small building is seen behind the train. The title is printed along the bottom of the image as "Log Train, Finkbine L'B' R. Co. Wiggins, Miss."
