Very sad. Charlie was a great guy. I knew him very well and bought many, many trains from CharlesRo over the last 40 years, right up to the present. Indeed, CharlesRo has always been my #1 dealer. I always looked forward to speaking with Charlie at the York Train Meets and at the store. I can still see him sitting on his chair at his large booth at York. It was clear that Charlie's health was declining over the past few years, but he never complained. Charlie was a real gentleman and a giant in our hobby. He will certainly be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Charlie and his family.
