I had thought there was a mention of Bill Welch models being sold by Ted Culotta at Prototype Rails in Cocoa Beach. But the message is not appearing in a search of this or a couple other groups.

Bill Welch was a meticulous person and planned ahead so I have not asked because I just assume that
he gave them away or turned them over to someone else. His collection was extremely impressive by the
early 1990's - after he'd been modeling only for a few years - so I imagine the final collection was just
incredibly wonderful models. Wherever they ended up I hope they are well cared for. :-)

Bill Welch has ben a major player on the Prototype Community for over fifteen yearts.  What has become of his collection on his passing?  I hzave spoken to several members 

who were involved in the Memoial Tribute to Bill and they have no idea.  I had heard that some of his airplane models (Yes, he was into that as well) were sold at a prototype 

meet. There has, however, been no mention to my knowledge as to what has happened to his marvelous freight cars.

 

Does anyone have any information?
