Tom Coulombe

Tom Coulombe of Lewiston died on Monday, June 7, after a courageous battle with cancer.  Tom was a past president of The Great Falls Model Railroad Club and until 2016 was the Station Master and Treasurer of the club, two offices in which he provided valuable expertise for several years.

Tom and his wife Carmen were active participants in all of the special events at the railroad club.  Tom helped mentor members of the Model Railroading Classes taught at the club every year and coordinated the club’s annual spring and fall model railroad shows in Auburn and Topsham.

As a Boy Scout leader, he helped local Scouts and Scouts at national jamborees earn their railroading badges, using “Time Saver” layouts like the one he frequently brought to the railroad club’s Family Night at Governor’s Restaurant.  By a unanimous vote at the club’s annual meeting in May, the meeting room at The Great Falls Model Railroad Club has now been named “Coulombe Hall.”
