As per my previous post, the train is now back in Vancouver where its journey began, for visits to three final layouts including Greg Kennelly, Gary Hinshaw and Mark Dance.

According to the Facebooks, it was a year ago today that we learned of Puddy's passing.  I propose a toast, to the safe travels of our memorial train, and to our departed member, mentor, and friend.  Here's to you, Mike.  Cheers!

+1.  Nothing can replace Pud's contributions to this community of ours (to say nothing of his family) but this memorial has been a great way to keep Mike in our thoughts.

Mike's involvement with RCAF veterans gave us something else to bond over.  So, as we say in the USAF of our fallen brother Airmen, "Here's a toast..."

Gary, Greg and I did exactly that over dinner last evening prior to the train's tour of Tehachapi, B.C.

Have the articles started appearing in N Scale yet?  None of my locals carry it, and I let me subscription lapse...  I'd like to seek it out if it's available.

Yes, I recall at least last couple of issues had the articles in them.
