    Very sad. I remember him very well as he was so often associated with whatever was going on in almost every issue back then.

    RIP

    One of the great experiences I enjoyed while on the staff of Model Railroader was interacting with Jim Hediger. Not only was Jim a fine modeler, he was an able teacher, as well as a font of humorous stories about people in the hobby and things railroading in general.

    Jim's Ohio Southern was becoming well known by the late 1970s, and was one of my first introductions to realistic operations. The iteration of the OS I saw in person was one of the first layouts to prove the viability of double-deck construction.

    Jim, a lifelong model railroader whose favorite railroad was the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton (his parents employer), joined the staff of MR in 1972 and retired as senior editor 43 years later. He has more than 750 articles under his byline.

    High greens, Jim. You are missed.
    "The number of model railroads I have seen covered with the dust of apathy is directly related to the number of modelers who told me that they weren't interested in operation." -- Tony Koester

    Realistic model railroad operations do not involve switching puzzles!
