Sad news: Mike Chase, an enthusiastic N-scale modeler known around the Phoenix area, passed away June 2 from complications of a massive stroke he suffered in early February.

Mike was known for his friendly enthusiasm, and was a member of the Sun-N-Sand club in Scottsdale. He will be missed by all who knew him.

Mike enjoyed several visits running trains over the Arizona Divide during happier days, and an industry on my previous layout had been named in his honor.

Thanks for remembering Bob, Richie...

While Mike wasn't active on the forums, you would frequently see him around the local swap meets and hobby shops, and nobody loved the hobby more. He, like Bob, was always ready with a funny story or a joke, and was a likeable guy.

I was just thinking of Bob the other day. I miss his stories here and on Trainboard.

Sun N Sand has lost another good member.

Vern, my condolences. He looks so young. Wow.

And yes, I remember Bob Woods as well. Amazing how we are all together for such a short time
