Since there are a few videos of the memorial train's travels, maybe they could be collected on a DVD and presented to Mike's family along with the book and train.

Hi Al:

Interesting idea.  Thanks for the suggestion; I'll keep it in mind.

The McGrattan Memorial Train returned home to Canada this afternoon after its tour of the United States, which included 26 layouts in 14 states:




It is now time to swap the USPS carton for a Canada Post one, and commence the Canadian portion of the tour.

To all of our American participants who have hosted the train, thank you for honouring Mike in this way, thank you for your care and custody of the train, and thank you for all the wonderful comments you have written in the Book of Condolence.  This forum is truly a special place.

Glad to see the train make it back to the home-country after a long journey across USA!

The M3T has arrived. Local crews will raise a glass in Mike's honour:



Much more to come in the photo thread over the next few days as the train commences the second Canadian portion of its journey.
