    This notice was on the Platelayers website today.
    Frank Dubery
    Frank was the prime mover behind Aberfoyle Junction, the large O scale display layout. He was a skilled scatchbuilder; he said he developed the skill when he was travelling and staying in hotel rooms.
    I once sat next to Frank at our craftsman's display table: I was building cardboard kits; he was putting rivets in a scartchbuilt van by drilling holes and inserting plastic rod.
    Aberfoyle Junction is scheduled to be open later this month; no word yet on whether they'll go ahead.

    That is sad news David and a great loss for the hobby here in Ontario.
