    The Texas Merci Boxcar was moved from its perch of over 60 years at American Legion Travis Post 76 in Austin to the Texas Military Forces Museum

    at Camp Mabry - just a few miles up the road.  It took a crane with 220 tons of counterweight to pick the boxcar up and load it onto a "lowboy" trailer

    for the move.  There were many supporters who helped make the move possible and it is now on full display and protected in the museum at Camp   

    Mabry.  The photos below are from the Grand Opening of the Texas Merci Boxcar Exhibit held February 23, 2014.
