Re: Mexlist: mourning Paige Porter

Bill Welch

I concur. I met John the year I lived in Pasadena.

I am not sure if this was ever noted on this list but Paige Porter was another person very well informed on railroading in Mexico. He gave one of the best presentations ever, IMO, at Naperville several years ago. He worked at MDC at one point and along with Brian Leppert was responsible for their WP 50 DD SS car which I have used to also create MP, Sl-SF, and T&P models. He was a prince of a guy.

He died in very freakish accident many months ago and is missed by many I am sure.
