AVATAR - DAVE GUUSS

This Scenery Source List was originally complied by the late Dave Gauss, a long time OGR Forum Member. Dave passed away on December 11, 2017, after a short bout with cancer. His legacy lives on in this extensive list of scenery resources for the model railroader. 

We are continuing to honor Dave's work, and to provide a useful reference for modelers in the OGR community by continuing to update and grow this source list.  If you have suggestions, additions or updates, please contact me at the email in my profile.  Thank you Rich Redmond.
