Mike Chambers has been a HUGE part of the Railroad Line Forums since its inception. Thus I have added Mike C's Railroad home page to the list of rotating banners and renamed the Craftsman Corner in his memory.

Most appropriate - Mike was a true craftsman and a true gentleman.

Both excellent ideas Joe and a fitting tribute to the man who made, and kept 'the Corner' what it is.

Great idea to commemorate Mike in this way.

Since I never personally met Mike, could you give us a bit of his life story?

Joe, a most appropriate tribute and like my others here I'm sure, Mike and his family have been in my thoughts often. I was thinking last evening of some way to honor Mike here in connection with the Craftsman Corner, and whole-heartedly concur with your tribute.

Thanks,
