Re: Rob Manley

I echoed my sentiments about the loss of Rob on the Illinois Central group.

I was fortunate to meet and talk with him at many train shows both here in Wisconsin and Illinois. It was always a pleasure. He too along with Bill Welch have left a great legacy for all of us to remember and to follow.

My prayers go out to Rob's family

So sorry to hear of another passing.  Rob was a great modeler and eloquent spokesman for Pan Pastel weathering.

I learned Rob Manley, master of Pan Pastel’s, died on Monday. I understand he had a heart attack. Here is his obituary.
