    Hmm, just need someone to take a round trip Amtrak from NY to Ottumwa to complete it.

    I’m very sorry to hear of Keith’s passing, if his family reads this I send condolences. I’m sure he will be missed by many. I remember when I first started on here, whenever I posted a photo for feedback I always appreciated his comments. RIP.

    Losing an on-line friend or long-time acquaintance is a weird feeling.
    If you or they simply stopped visiting the same sites, it's not a big deal....people grow and change...life goes on.
    But when you hear that someone has passed away...it hits much harder...harder that you expect. They suddenly feel more like a friend that you really knew.

    This site will not be the same without Keith but I'm thankful for the significant contributions he's made to it over the years.

    RIP Keith.

    I understand and completely agree. He was active on the forum literally right up to the end. It was his absence of over a month that got me wondering where he was, and the team got to talking. He contributed here in many ways, large and small. When you're used to seeing someone near daily, even online, you maybe take that for granted more than you realize.

    He's already missed, and will continue to be missed, for a long long time.

    Saddened to hear the news. He was knowledgeable and I enjoyed his train videos. He will be missed.

    Makes you wonder if/how your own sudden absence would be perceived, if at all.

    I know that anytime I saw Keith's avatar in a thread, I knew it was something I should read and consider, as he was a voice with experience and reason. He certainly will be missed, and I am so sorry for his loved ones that he departed so suddenly and so young.

    Big Mike pretty much sums it up on how I feel. Keith was the first person on here I talked with and he helped me out many times and told me when I was wrong and helped and told me when I was on the right track .He kept me moving along in the very beginning , he will be missed on here for sure .
