    Sad news. I had not seen him posting in some months. Just learned that "hminky" (Harold Minkwitz) passed away in late March of this year. He was known for for his "Pacific Coast Air Line" and it's web site, On30, HOn30 and "55n3" concept. :(

    Oh no. His website was very inspirational to early era modelers such as myself. Sad loss. Belated condolences to his friends and family.

    Sad news. I did not know about this model rr. I appreciate the information about the person. I have wondered how something like this might be handled considering some of us are older people. I am glad Mr. Minkwitz was recognized and remembered.

    He's the one who got me modeling 55n3. I've been reading his page for over a decade now I think.

    Sorry to hear about it.
