One small hand made French doll, located in the boxcar in Bristol, was thought to be the only remaining artifact from Tennessee's boxcar, but Mr. Brad Kavan, at the Tennessee State Museum in Nashville reports that a 1985 inventory report has been found at the museum listing 35 items from Tennessee's Merci Train boxcar. The actual artifacts have not been located yet, but are assumed to be in storage in one of the museum's storage vaults. As soon as verification of the artifact's existence is received, we will report it here.
