Default Flying Scotsman Enterprises--slightly OT

I have learned of the passing this year of Mr. George Hinchcliffe. His association with British steam modelling, garden railways, and the Gainsborough (Lincolnshire) Railway Society was, perhaps, not as well-known as his management of the Flying Scotsman support organization for the operation of LNER A3 Pacific 4472, the Flying Scotsman. I met him and his family in 1970. Speaking personally I found him to be a fine man; hospitable, friendly, and interesting. Like me, you may find the obituary below to be worth reading:

Never met him. I seem to have missed out on something great.
