I am very curious to know whether the name Joe Buderwitz rings a bell for any of you folks, especially those of you in your 70s, 80s and 90s.
Joe Buderwitz was a very highly regarded lawyer in White Plains, NY, and a very knowledgeable and enthusiastic O Gauge train collector and operator. He must have been a member of the TCA. I met him when I was a young lawyer in White Plains and also at the Westchester Toy and Train Show in White Plains back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. I remember speaking to him about trains when he was a vendor at one of those train shows with beautiful top of the line Lionel Steam engines. He told me that he had appeared as an expert witness at trial to render opinions on the value of model trains and collections, and that he had once bought an antique locomotive for $25,000, which was astonishing to me.
Unfortunately, Joe died of a heart attack in his late 50s/early 60s. I feel like his early demise prevented us from developing a friendship.
If you happen to remember Joe Buderwitz, please post a reply and share what you remember about him. Arnold
