Tom Snyder RIP

Been a bad month for toy trains - first Lenny Dean and now Tom Snyder.

Tom passed away at 71 years young on July 29, 2007 at his home in San Francisco. He was fighting leukemia for some time.

It's no secret Tom was a huge booster for Lionel and toy trains, even when it wasn't fashionable.

Tom was an amazing standard gauge collector, I would urge anyone with the time and computer to go out and order his terrific DVD from TM Books and Video (www.tmbv.com). I am going to make T&M Books and Video a permanent bookmark on the blog.

Tom will be missed. You can also click on the link above and go to E-online article.

Vaya Con Dios Tom....

First thing I did this morning after I heard the news was buy his DVD. Didn't even think twice about.

Here's a link to a nice anecdote about Mr. Snyder that I think sums up his character pretty good:
