Re: Mike Brock

Thanks for letting us know Jeff, 

Very sad to hear.    I have a great appreciation of the work Mike and the other founders and volunteers brought to Cocoa Beach, but also in the moderation of this list over the years.    I missed seeing his face at Cocoa Beach this year, and i’m also going to miss his occasional emails about moderator jail!   

Prayers and condolences for and to his family and many friends.

It is with great sadness that I must tell you that Mike Brock, founder of the Steam-Era Freight Cars list, has passed away.  I just found out this morning that he passed away on Monday, January 2, 2022.  He was a great friend as well as a fine modeler.  I am still in shock, but hope to be able to write more about him in the next day or two.


We just concluded Prototype Rails 2023 in Cocoa Beach (which he also founded), and nobody there had been informed that he had passed.  But the convention went very well, so I’m sure he was with us in spirit.


Rest in peace, Mike.
