Goodbye, Ron Dunlop

Ron DunlopWe have lost another one of our own. Ron Dunlop died on Monday, September 19. It was a shock to most of us because he was with us two weeks ago on the Labor Day steam up. He even put up a picture of himself as engineer of the Glenbrook on Facebook. He was passionate about life whether he was flying his plane, racing his cars, or being on the crew of the steam trains. He shared his love of trains with his daughter, Kyla and son, Kenny and went so far as to bring them with him to the Motorman Class to learn railroad safety and how to drive the Edwards Motor Car. He was a enthsiastic crew member, fantastic friend, and just a great guy to be around. Our condolences go to his family. We will miss him.
