Robert Stacy Paine passed away on December 6th at his family's homestead, Paine Hollow in South Wellfleet, MA.  I understand Mr. Paine's Paine Enterprises Marine Railway was the source of our Brookville -- an important part of our museum's history.  A brief discussion of the PEMR can be found at http://www.railroad.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=126&t=34742

Mr. Paine's obituary can be found at http://www.capecodtimes.com/obituaries/20171210/robert-s-paine and http://obits.dignitymemorial.com/dignity-memorial/obituary.aspx?n=Robert-Paine&lc=7888&pid=187493851&mid=7670625
