Good evening Si,  I know of him and didn't give him a thought until you brought it to my attention, I know he built esoteric stuff but didn't remember that it was 3/8n40.  I may be off base here and if I am I apologize but it seems to me he ran afoul of someone over some issues, not necessarily model railroad related.  I do remember he would soften truck springs and put a drop of water in the axel holes, so it would squeak.  He would tout that his equipment was heavy enough to bend a paper match when run over.  Wow, talk about going into the Way Back Machine, seems he lived maybe in Montana or the Dakotas.  Since I didn't save any Gazettes and if he isn't on the net, it might be hard to find any of his stuff on the Net.Si, thanks a bunch,
