Re: Bob Buck has passed away


Very sad to read this. Bob was a great community builder. In his prime he was a pillar and motivator to New England railfans and modelers. It was a pleasure to know him.

We all have to pass some time, and I hope his celebrates the many accomplishments he left for the rest of us.

Bob Buck died Wednesday night. Those of you in the northeast may have
met Bob at the annual Amherst Society train show in West Springfield,
Mass. Bob oversaw the growth of the Amherst Society show from a
three-hour event in a classroom at the University of Massachusetts to
the spectacular it is each winter at the Eastern States Exposition.

He also ran Tucker's Hobbies in Warren, Mass.

Here's Bob's obituary:
