I can never figure out why I have to send an E-Mail to get the list of items for sale. Why don't you just post the list?

Great Northern safety film ca. 1940's

A Great Northern Ry. safety film I have not seen before. Lots of close up shots of roofs and hand brakes. At about 5:00 the crew does a drop.

     Very distressing news. I got to know Ron through his sales of Signature Press books, and always enjoyed his good humor and retail knowledge. And I was always impressed with the well-stocked stores he ran. He will certainly be missed.

Since we are discussing Ron's CV, there is a chapter missing. I know Ron flew choppers in Nam, but when I met him in the eighties at his original vest pocket store in Des Plaines, he was already out of the army (don't know about the National Guard) and was working as a civilian pilot for some gov't agency. That came to an end with his heart attack, which occurred after he had moved the shop to the big store in the shopping center. Yes, he did take a position as an investigator with the FAA, but it wasn't long before he decided that wasn't for him and took his pension and devoted his full energies to the store.

Good Friends,

This photo was taken on the D&LW's 25th Street/South Brooklyn Terminal, one of a number of vest-pocket operations served by car float The tiny yard featured a huge coal transfer operated by Premium Coal Co., which can be seen behind boxcar diesel 3001. There was also a poultry transfer facility, a freight shed, team tracks, and apparently some warehouses. These tiny New York terminals would make great model railroads, and one could come close to duplicating them in their entirety.

For more on the South Brooklyn Terminal, see http://members.trainweb.com/bedt/indloco/dlw25.html#INDEX .

Yours Aye,


Garth Groff

FW: Ron Sebastian - Des Plaines Hobbies

Charlie Vlk
 

All-

 

Barb and I are still stunned by the news of Ron’s passing on Wednesday morning.

 

I was just up in Illinois for the recent Burlington Route Historical Society Meet and I enjoyed spending the entire Monday afternoon prior to the meet kibitzing with Ron at Des Plaines Hobbies.

He always referred to me as “Charlie buy-a-vowel” and reminded me he was younger (by a year).  

 

He not only ran one of the best Model Railroad Hobby Shops (more of an Institution than a mere store!)  in the country (if not the best!) but was responsible for the creation of O, S, and N products under Des Plaines Hobbies, S Scale America and Centralia brands.  He was very generous with his knowledge and expertise and cooperated with many well-known manufacturer / importers in supplying prototype information for their products.

 

I appreciate reading everyone’s memories of Ron…..learning things about a great friend that I did not know about.

Ron worked back in the day when he still had hair at the famed All Nations Hobby Shop in Chicago….prior to the time I worked there in the mid-1960s. I believe he also had a career as a FAA Crash Investigator besides his military helicopter service both in the Army and National Guard.  

He had a brief stint working in train service on the Chicago & North Western.   He would never reveal his railroad nickname and none of his shop employees ever found anyone who had worked with him that would reveal it…..a sign that there was a really good story attached to the moniker!!!

 

Barb and I extend our deepest sympathies to Sue and his family and we have Ron and all of the Des Plaines Hobbies fraternity in our thoughts and prayers!

Tom,   

    That's a good idea.  Haven't thought about ice service.  Will try and keep that in mind (what's left of it)!

Jon,

If I'm not mistaken, you could plausibly have a Bohn ventilator car in ice service for that time frame.  There is a chart in the SFRD reefer book that graphically shows the range of in service populations by car class.   I know there has been a picture posted of one of those remaining car bodies still in existence as a farm shed with intact ventilators that has been posted here.   That would support the idea that once transferred from produce service to company ice service the ventilators weren't always removed.

Re: Ron Sebastian

Ron was a U.S. Army helicopter pilot and was stationed somewhere in the south—Ft. Stewart I think—which is where I think his interest in southeastern RR's developed. He owned many SE RR drawing I know and it was fun to talk to him about his resources. While in the army he suffered a coronary event that meant an end to his flying. While then an instructor he began investing in side businesses including Des Plaines that became full-time when he left the Army. IIRC all of this came up when I asked a drawings question one day in a phone call. He was a very generous person and dotting grandparent.
