Great idea Alan. I would like to wish all my train friends a very Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and a VERY happy and healthy New Year. We bought a place in Florida in mid-2018 and now spend winters here (not much sense spending the summers here). I miss the NJHR Christmas party and train show. And Trainstock and Springfield. But not enough to be back in the northeast in the winter.
Bob Bruno, a NJHR member, just passed. We had some club internal e-mails. Bob was a really great guy. I've periodically invited people to my house to play with trains, and have totally enjoyed doing that. The attached picture of "train guys" is from 2013. Bob is between John Scaravella and Dotty. He was always a pleasure to be with. Other people in the picture are Bill Parkinson, Erol (Locolawyer), Bob DeGuarde, Captain John, Alex, me (behind John), Carl, Dotty and Marty. As Mike Caruso says, all in front of my "wall of hats".
The other picture is of my grandchildren Theo and Rory having fun acting as train tunnels. Gotta have fun!
