John was a model railroad HO scale hobbyist. He left this world on Friday and his family and friends gathered for a memorial this morning. For decades he had been perfecting and running and creating his city. He made and painted each house from places in and around the Philadelphia Pa, suburbs.
65 years of marriage, 30 years of retirement, many hours of personal labor and entertainment and fellowship with his buddies and their toys. I applied my hobby of photography to take some pics for the service. Here are a few. John's widow Clara will move with her daughter and the club will pack the train off with them to be cared for my his grandson. Double click on these pictures to see the love and care and detail in this craft.
