    I picked up the May issue of Trains last night and they mentioned that Lee Van Visse passed away at his home in Feb, he will be sadly missed within the railroad community. I very much enjoyed his input and insight into the hobby. Our condolonces to his family. Ron, Shirley & family...

    Gee I didn't know that, I remember when Lee Vande Visse was technical Illustrator for Model Railroader magazine, in fact he had an amazing 0n3 layout.
    Sadly missed my condolonces to his family.

    Yeah I heard about it on another forum. He also was a excellent columnist, enjoyed those he wrote for Great Models Railroads alot. He will indeed be missed, my thoughts and prayers go to his family and friends. :(

    What a tragic shame. His articles were always the first I would read.
