In the grand scheme of things, losing a model railroad--even one as fantastic as the Greeley Freight Station Museum--pales in comparison to the thousands whose homes were destroyed or damaged in the recent flooding in Colorado.
At the same time, I was happy to learn that the Museum did not suffer any damage from the floods, although some members of the Museum did experience losses.
"Some of our own volunteers suffered damages and losses, but luckily so far the losses are restricted to material items," the Museum posted on its website.
"It will take time to clean up and rebuild and we wish everyone the strength needed to get through these hard times."
I think we all join them in hoping that people in the area will soon be able to recover and rebuild.
Earlier this year one of those volunteers, Bill Botkin, sent me some of his photos of the Museum's layout. Fortunately, his home did not sustain any damage.
P.S. This post is my 500th on this blog. I can't think of a better one for this milestone than about a layout I want to visit one day . . . .
