and thus goes the ever present cruelty of life, it's end, BUT he lives on through the legacy of who he was to everyone he helped here, and may the spirit of Model Railroading continue from his efforts as well as many others.  Smiley

Just in case. Save his pages to your PC as an HTML. You will always have his data in case the pages go away.

I'm very sad to learn of Jim's passing. In addition to being, in my opinion, the most reliable and authoritative person on this board, Jim was a kind and gentle man. His warmth and people focus came out loud and clear in the friendly, careful way he answered questions, and in the supportive and encouraging way he responded when he needed to correct or contradict someone. Jim's legacy as a person cannot be over-estimated; the value of the information he shared with his fellow model railroaders, immeasurable. Thank you, Jim, and God bless.
