Al­lan will be sorely missed

Bob Brown, by e-mail

Model Rail (UK) - - The Club Room -

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.
