We mourn the passing of our friend and Librarian/Archivist George Pitchard, who took the highball to the great beyond shortly after ExTRAINaganza.
George was a life-long railway enthusiast and a true encyclopedia of arcane narrow-gauge lore, which he studied in depth throughout much of his life.
A talented modeler, George was largely responsible for creating our O Gauge layout which brought forth many smiles from young and old alike. We will miss his many skills and dry wit, but every time a wheel turns on the O Gauge, he will be there in our hearts… Rest in Peace, old friend.
We like to have our younger (and sometimes young at heart) visitors write their names on a train and put it on our tree. At the end of ExTRAINaganza, we have a wonderful tree decorated with the names of the young folks who have come to see us!
