Re: Richard Hendrickson


Wow, shocking indeed. Words fail.

His gifts to the freight car community are immeasurable.

So very sad, for Sandra, and for all of us                    ....Mike Del Vecchio

Shocking news.  Richard just ask to friend me on my new Facebook page.  He wrote of his future plans on his.  He was the finest freight car historian in America, perhaps the world.  He cannot be replaced.  My deepest sympathies to Sandra. – Al Westerfield

I have just heard the terribly sad news that Richard died in a fall a couple of days ago. I don't know any details. Richard was a marvelously well-informed historian and modeler, and always very generous with his time and information to anyone who needed help. An awful lot of us will miss him greatly.
