We at the Boothbay Railway Village will be starting restoration work on the Maine Merci Train boxcar in the Spring and an unveiling of the restored boxcar is scheduled for Sunday, July 12th, in the afternoon, time TBD.

We at the Boothbay Railway Village are also producing a small brochure on the Maine Merci Car, to be used both for educational purposes and as a fund-raising tool to help us build a Pavilion to house the Car.
