Reading Tony's post regarding the passing of Richard is most
distressing. We have lost a great historian and friend. He was
always generous with his time and knowledge of freight cars, always
willing to help those of us who needed assistance, not expecting
anything in return. His articles and books on freight cars and
railroad history, especially that of the Santa Fe, and his advocacy in
setting the standards for prototype modeling will be his legacy.
All of us will sorely miss seeing him at Lisle, Cocoa Beach and other
RPMs. We will miss his talks and his stories and humor. Rest in
Peace, Richard! My most sincere condolences to Sandra and his family!
