    This is very sad news indeed. I hope he is in a better place after the ill-health he has been suffering of late.

    Farewell our "Official Answer Man".

    I too like others who didn't perhaps liaise with Wayne directly still greatly enjoyed his input here. I have a number of key threads from Trainboard bookmarked for reference when I get around to those aspects on my railroad. Wayne's input features widely in these.

    Godspeed Wayne and all my best wishes to Jan and family.

    My deepest sympathies to the Wilson Family.
    Though I did not know Wayne personally, I've been a member of several model railroad forums over the past 8 years which were fortunate to have his railroading and model railroading wisdom shared with the memberships. I will miss his informative posts. Rest in Peace Wayne. :angel2:

    Rest in peace wayne. My condolence to his family. As i find no words in english allow me to say it in german.

    Was vergangen ist,
    das kehrt nicht wieder,
    jedoch ging es leuchtend nieder,
    so leuchtet lange es noch nach.

    I only read a few of his postings but got the vibe he was a good man who wouldn't steer you wrong. He's in a better place, with an infinite sized layout space with no walls and no support columns now.

    DITTO. I too hope Ash's family knows what he meant to us. Again, I must have 25 letters from him and to him in email and more in the open forum and private TB messages. Lots more.. He knew E V E R Y T H I N G about the hobby and the realroaders...and what a comic ! There are 3 photos he sent me that I would not post up here if I could !! Totally hillarious..I bet some of you got them too..M

    Watash and I were sort of co-hosting my "Storytime with Charlie" thread on the Railfanning Discussions board. He was a raconteur of the first stripe! His colorful tales of
    days long past and experiences of railroading that so many of us can only fantasize about will be sorely missed. He is now signing the register in the great "Register Room" in the life beyond. Please allow me a variance to the "rules" of this board while I post my usual prayer for a deceased friend. You may stop reading here if you dont care for any
    religious postings.


    I pray...
    Eternal Rest grant unto our brother Wayne,O Lord,
    and let the Perpetual Light shine upon him.
    And
    May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed
    Rest in Peace.

    Amen!

    Charlie

    I offer my condolences to his personal family and his extened family here and in the model railroad arenas. I did not know Wayne(Watash) but he will be missed by many, and his influence will linger for some time it seems.

    Thanks for the prayer Charlie.

    I did not know the man or his family. But from seeing the posts , he was a valuable member of this forum. I know many of you will miss his. My thoughts go out to his family.
