Since it hasn't been posted here, I thought I would let the OGR community know that Gary Schrader passed away almost 2 weeks ago. I know many of you don't know him, but he was "THE" O scale 2R guru who could do virtually anything with a brass or plastic model train. He rebuilt, re-powered, corrected, updated, painted and weathered hundreds and maybe even thousands of model trains during his life. He also has(d) a phenomenal O scale layout in his basement.
He also was the reason the KEY AC locomotives were built several years ago. He communicated with the builder and was THE quality control person in charge.
May the signals be green Gary and we will all miss you. You've left a hole that no one can fill.
