Merci Train - Oregon

Oregon Boxcar

Oregon Merci Boxcar at its new location in N. Bend, OR shown on the day of its dedication, July 15, 2006. Since then, as seen in John Steven's July 2010 photos below, the openings in the wood framework have had glass or plexiglass put in them on all four sides, thus providing further protection from the elements.
P.S. We appreciate your suffering getting rained on to make these pictures for us John.
