- On Saturday evening, 1 December 2018, the live steam hobby fraternity lost a true gentleman and consummate model builder. Gail Gish, owner of the Rio Grande Scenic Railroad located near Pleasant Hill, MO, passed away have a rather lengthy illness. Gail was a huge fan of Colorado narrow gauge so much so that his railroad was 98% dual gauge track with at least 15 dual gauge switches....it may be the largest private dual gauge railroad in the US. Some 25+ years ago Gail and Warren Weston co-authored a Modeltec building series on the Rio Grande Class T-12 ten-wheelers. He was a gentleman's gentleman, a superb host and a great friend to our fraternity.
