Title: J. Emmons Lancaster - RIP
Post by: Glenn Christensen on July 12, 2014, 08:41:06 AM
Friends,

I apologize if this has been posted elsewhere, but I just saw this obituary notice for J.Emmons Lancaster in the Portland Press Herald.

Mr. Lancaster's contributions to railroad, and particularly "Two-Foot" railroad preservation have been significant and varied and I wanted to make sure his passing was duly noted.

Rest in peace good sir!

Sincerely,
Glenn

Thank you Glenn,

I remember Emmons well - He was one of the "Old Breed" who's depth of knowledge and experience was boundless.
I have always felt privileged to have known him.

Best regards,
Terry Harper
