A wonderful idea. I'm sure Mike would be both proud and honored.

Excelent gesture, and truly warranted. He was the "Railroad-Line".

Excellent way to honor Mike's contributions to the hobby and the forum.

Here's another thought: In general I think we need a way to capture and recognize truly outstanding discussion threads, whether they're explanations of great craftsmanship, interesting historical or prototype discussions, etc. Is there a way to set up a contest or nominations, leading to a forum area to capture "best of the Railroad-Line"?

A wonderful gesture, Joe... and well deserved. I will truly miss Mike as both a mentor and a friend (as we all will....)!

I was so saddened to hear that Mike passed. I knew him for years and learned a lot from him, both about modeling and being a man and administrator. He was a truly skilled craftsman yet he shared his ideas and methods with anyone who asked. Some of his modeling and photography was indistinguishable from real. The model railroad community as a whole lost an important member and mentor. Fred Miller

You know Joe, I was ready to quit this outfit a couple of times but some words of wisdom and common sense from Mike soon put me on the right track. I think that your tribute ideas are right on. I think that I've got most of his entries on paper but there isn't enough paper in the world to put down what this outfit AND me owe him. Now, because he gave me so much incentive, I'm going back to the train room and do some things that I have been putting off for way too long. Thanks Joe and you too Mike.
