The display table in front of the car has a number of items of interest. The article on the back of the table describes the history of the Merci Train.
For many years, the car was used as a billboard for a state park located southeast of Huntsville.
The car was retired from its service as a billboard, renovated, and then displayed in the museum. This picture shows an in progress picture of the renovation and of the completed car with some of the people responsible for the renovation.
