I just learned of the passing of Rick Daniels. He was a fellow N scaler modeling the Southern Pacific's Cascade Subdivision in Oregon. An inspiration to many of us for his talented backdrops and other multiple modeling skills. He made use of tall scenic vistas on his large basement sized layout that was nothing short of awesome. Unfortunately his website is no longer active, but if anyone else has pictures that they can share of his layout, they would be most welcome. Here is a link to some of his work that he shared on one of the forums (hopefully they leave it up in memorial):
We enjoyed sharing research and data specific to "the Hill" over the years, as well as other N scale and SP related info until his health finally waned near the end. Rick will be greatly missed.
My condolences and best wishes to the family.
Rest in peace my friend.
