[slimgaugeguild] Dave Garcia

Some sad news about Dave Garcia. You can read below. Dave had told me long ago that he had a lot of Rio Grande archive material. Does anyone know if he had donated or otherwise gotten it into one of the museums?

He apparently was never married nor had children. And there is no family, from what I heard from Jeff Reynolds.

Does anyone know if he had an executor, someone with power of attorney, or a successor trustee? 

I heard that he had a young friend who may have been helping him out. Anyone know that person?

Perhaps most concerning is that Dave had “rescued” a lot of D&RGW documents when the Alameda station attic was being emptied by the railroad. I’m sure he had far more than that. 

The question is did he make provisions to donate that material to the various museums?

Another question is did he have family?
Families often just throw those things out. 

I also heard he had a lot of HOn3 brass and parts. Again does anybody know it’s disposition?

Hey Guys;

I have some sad news to report. I got a call from Nick, he reported that Dave Garcia just passed away.

Nick did not have a lot of details, apparently Dave was recovering from heart issues and also may of had Covid-19 in the end.

If anyone else can fill in the details, let us know.

Dave was a treasure trove of information and was a friend of the Guild, very sad to heard he is gone.

So sorry to hear this.  Dave was also the generous kind. At one of our HOn3 Symposiums years ago he and I discussed a project.  A few weeks later some custom brass parts showed up in the mail unsolicited. 

Maybe we all need to find an evening between Sept 2 & 5 to raise a virtual toast to Dave and anyone else we lost during the past year.

Unhappy to report that Dave Garcia passed away today. He had been hospitalized due to the COVID and passed due to complications. For those of you who may not have known Dave he was a wizard at fixing and fine tuning brass engines and a great teller of tales on all things railroad and military. The model railroad community and his many friends will miss him greatly.

Re: conoco tank cars

Brian Kopp
 

I mentioned I hadn't used the decals for the conoco cars yet but I did test one on a gloss black piece of plastic. See attached. Not perfect but ok. Scale the photo on the screen so it is about 3" across to get an idea of how it looks full size. That makes the edge scalloping less noticeable.

Hi LLoyd, hope you are doing well and staying safe.

Re: decal printing

Lasers use powder and are heat fused onto the paper surface. If the decals are from old stock, I always spray it twice with a clear fixative spray (dull coat or testor's or big spray can of mat clear spray to help hold the cracked pieces together for the soak and transfer.

Hi Kevin,
The short answer is yes if you don't need to print white lettering or real high resolution. A color (or black only) laser printer can take decal paper and print on it like any other paper.

thank you Brian for the reply.

ok, so, OF COURSE I do not have a laser printer.
and, you guessed it, I want the lettering in White.

ok, now for me to discuss this all with a friend of mine who is a computer guy.
 (I am not)
once I run this all past him and see if he thinks we can get  white ink and decal paper, dry transfer paper maybe? and so on, we'll give it a shot on an inkjet and i'll let you know how it goes.
(it will most likely be a while)
thanks again.
Kevin.

Re: conoco tank cars

Laser printer ink is not water soluble (unlike most inkjet ink). In fact it's mostly plastic powder (with a couple of market exceptions). Once its "baked" onto the decal paper by the laser printer its good to go.

In fact they make waterproof laser printer paper that works with your regular laser printer too!
