I would take the extra money and do a tribute to Barry Broskowitz too.

That would be a great idea also as he would aways step and help folks. I know he bailed me out several times when updating my DCS system and setting up the WiFi to work off my iPad.

Thank you everyone that contributed    I plan on calling the museum today  Since there is extra money in the Go Fund Me account a few here have suggestions for its use.  I started this specifically for Marty.  I dont want to take away from any of the other friends that have passed but this wasnt started for them.  All money will be given to the Toy Train Museum in Martys name whether its for the bricks or an extended donation. If anybody wants to start another collection for other memorials go right ahead.   If the Museum allows more bricks I will expand Marty's piece.  I just took a shot at a design but am not sure if the museum could do it this way.  So until I discuss it with them this is what I had in mind  If anybody has any suggestions I will entertain changes

Could not have said it better.

Thank You for thinking about and doing this.

Ben, Since Marty loves electrics, could we possibly add a catenary pole or two? I’m sure other forum members could add some even better options.

Congratulations  on a job well done to honor a truly great guy.

I thought of that but the museum has specific clip art that it offers  No electrics or catenary   I dont even know if they could do the railroad track border.  I also thought of adding some type of accolade in text on there just couldnt think of one

I am the person who first mentioned honoring Dotty. I gave my donation as a memorial to Marty F. and feel your design is just fine.

 MY practice in donating memorials --church, Hospice,etc, is to mention honor of the caregiver, spouse, significant other or whomever.

I did not know how you could include Dotty on Marty's brick and apologize for the confusion.

However, she should be recognized and honored for her extraordinary care of Marty..Perhaps a single row of bricks next to the 40 bricks for Marty. I will gladly donate if it can happen. There is no question in my mind that Marty honored and appreciated Dotty over the time that I saw their photos and videos.

Otherwise I thank you for your idea and work and will leave the issue alone.

I think a few bricks for her is a splendid idea.

he is one of the best friends and train enthusiast's I ever met and will truly be missed very much. He would help anyone with anything! Marty n Dottie are the best friends forever!
