Allan will be sorely missed
Bob Brown, by e-mail
I bought the September edition of Model Rail (MR252) last week and was devastated to read in your editorial about the passing of Allan Downes. Like thousands of other Model Rail readers, I marvelled at his boundless skills. The buildings he created were crafted to a fine art and left me completely transfixed and bewitched. He will be sorely missed by the modelling fraternity and I hope in the future that Model Rail will produce a special publication showing the skills and creative work of this modelling genius.
