    thanks guys, I'm copying and pating this to Tim's wife, she would like this.
    yea, I suppose Tim's up there getting ready to run another train over the west end. he was always the one to be extra sure about being right with God.

    also, I think some of his stories are up in the usa trains forums.

    Its always sad to hear that someone has passed away...especially someone like Mr. Marletter. His stories of life on the railroad I found very interesting, and I looked forward to finding them. It is good, though, that he just recently spent time with some of his grandkids. My thoughts and prayers for his family. He will be missed by more than just them.

    I'm shocked and sad. I looked forward to maybe meeting Tim on my next visit "home" to Virginia.
    My prayers go out to his family, esp. the little ones he so recently visited with.
    God Bless you all.

    The Conductor, the Good Lord himself told Tim it's time to get on the final passenger train. My thoughts and prayers goes towards his wife and the rest of his family.

    The good memories live on. We are saddened by Tim's passing, but consider ourselves fortunate to have some of those good memories right here on this board.
