Great story. I really liked the photo of the merci car being pulled by an old V&T 4-6-0. Neat stuff.

Woodie

I've seen several of these cars over the years. One of the best preserved I've seen so far is Georgia's one, in the same museum where the Civil war locomotive "The General" is at, in Kennesaw.
