As of the day I took this photo in Oct, 2014, this Boxcar was sitting in an empty lot that used to be the Gordonsville Motor Company. When in business, their office was the former Carthage Junction passenger depot, but that was relocated to a new home in 2014. Also, there had been a caboose at this location. Since everything else has moved, this also could be gone by now - I don't know. The lot is located along highway TN53 just off the I-40 exit.
According to Wikipedia, Manufacturers Railway (MRS) was owned by Anheuser-Busch and used to transport their product. They shut down in 2011.
