There is not much more I could add to whats been said.  Marty was a true gentleman and always one of the first to ask..."what is the product number" when someone was having a problem.

I was fortunate enough to visit Marty's layout many years ago while working in the area.  While I didn't get to sign the wall ( not sure if that was a thing yet) I always remember him being a great host.  More importantly I remember Marty giving his time to the forum for all of us that needed help.  I still have a few emails from Marty that I have saved.  It was a no brainer to support the forum in his name after all the years of support he gave to all of us!

I knew Marty a very short time compared to most of you here. We met at York in 2016, and when I told him I come to the Boston area frequently to visit family, he immediately said, "Why haven't you come to visit me? Come by any time." So, I did, and would stop by about every 4 or 5 months during my trips to Boston. After a few visits to Marty's house, I caught the command control bug, and he was a big help when I decided to add it to my railroad. Here we are after Marty converted my MTH Blue Comet to DCS/PS3. Since he liked to collect signatures, I turned the tables on him and asked him to sign the tender.

It was only a few years that I knew him, but I miss him and will treasure the times I was able to visit his home.
