Sorry to hear of Bill's passing. He and I traded negatives in the 1970s and I was pleased to finally meet him in recent years at Naperville.

A friend told me Bill Raia passed away recently. Bill was usually at Naperville selling photos and it seems he always had some new freight car photos. I know he provided photos to Jerry Stewart when he was advising Life-Like on their 0-8-0 and I am sure he made a lot of us happy with photos. Usually while looking through photos he would be in conversation with a Chicago friends about some aspect of RRing.
