Nate ran Nate's Light Iron Hobbies from his home. The female voice was most likely his wife Amy.
Yes Nathan Kline passed away 3 weeks ago. He was a very good friend of mine. I bought some brass from him a year and a half ago. Two old Eastie locomotives and two caboose's. He was a great friend and a friend to all.
The phone # is active and it was a female voice message. I suspect the business may still be on going.

Sadly, I have just learned of the passing a few months ago of Nathan Klein of Nate’s Light Iron Hobbies. I purchased from him, luckily, some Blackstone C-19s before they started going for crazy money. I corresponded with him, then lost touch with him when my own life hit a hard turn. He was good people, gone far too soon.
Life is too short. Model railroad equipment passes on from person to person just as paintings from the old masters have through the centuries. Equipment like brass locos and unbuilt discontinued kits represent the dreams of each owner, the hope of having the grand dream of modeling that vision we all have. As often as not, dreams are unrealized and equipment sold on. Such with Nate’s C-19s and EBT hoppers which I am the current custodian of. I have my own dream layout on paper. Hopefully Nate’s legacy equipment will operate on it and shine in reality as it does in the mind’s eye.
Farewell Nate, and thank you for everything.
