    From Trainboard:

    I'm afraid I have some terrible news regarding my stepfather Don Brown. He passed away this evening after a long fight with various infections and diabetes. I know he was very active in a lot of the discussion groups. His wife asked that any newsgroups/forums be notified of his passing. As I am Lionel/o-gauge fan myself, I know that the railroading world has lost one of its great mentors and living repositories of knowledge. If you have any questions regarding his passing, his wife (my mom) can be contacted at
    Again, I hate to have to post this saddening news, but I know there were a lot of people out there who looked up to him out here as being a sage of sorts.

    Take care.

    Sincerely, B. Sinn
