    Default Craig Sonnen

    I received word today that Craig Sonnen passed away after a battle with cancer. Craig participated here ( and elsewhere ) as @CASMMR

    Craig was a long time member of Central Ohio N-trak. If you have been to one of our Ohio N-scale weekends, you probably talked with Craig at some point. He was one of the co-chairs for the first 10 years and typically worked the registration desk.

    Craig was an NMRA MMR ( #323 ) and he was very proud of that achievement.

    I learned a lot about scenery from Craig. I think that was one of his favorite parts of the hobby, and it showed.

    He is leaving big shoes to fill here in Columbus.

    Highball, Craig, and RIP my friend.

    Sorry to hear about this; I've been up to the N-scale weekend a couple of times so I've probably seen him.

    I talked to him at the last couple of Ohio N scale weekends. He seemed like a really genuine kind of guy.

    I'm not allowed to run the train, the whistle I can't blow. I'm not allowed to say how fast the Railroad Train can go.
    I'm not allowed to shoot off steam, nor even clang the bell. But let the damned Train jump the track, and see who catches hell!
