Hey Guys. 


Has anyone seen their Gazette yet?  I saw on the White River page the advertisement showing the new issue...so perhaps it’s out at the printers?

Thanks for the info.

Re: [slimgaugeguild] Dave Garcia

I met Dave Garcia in 1982 when he called to ask if our very 1st open house of Mears' Madness could stay open for another hour until he got there. It was just happenstance that we lived in the same town, Downey, and there were enough hangers on to stay open until 6 p.m. He arrived bringing an HOn3 Locomotive, number 456 in naked brass I believe, and put it on the track. It was then i began to see the magic of micromotors/gearheads to make your layout space seem to actually double or triple.  Dave was a very smart guy with an unbelievable memory which did not diminish with age, like the rest of us, with fondness for narrow gauge brass. He was the product of a Hispanic father and a German mother. He spoke German but not Spanish. He was a historian and knew much about the World Wars. He was versed in a wide variety of obscure subjects, like Civil War Bands (both North and South), and was in demand as a consultant, one of the last people left that knew anything about Westinghouse Air Brakes used in urban transit vehicles.

Thus began a 38 year friendship with this giving and personable guy.
 
Dave reworked and remotored all twelve of my narrow gauge brass fleet: 20, 40, 41, 42, 74, 318, 452, 453, 455, 461, 462, 463. Because of all his magic, they all run the same speed, except the 318 which has a 4:1 gearhead not 6.3. It only runs from Montrose through Ridgway to Ouray, anyway, so it doesn't have to double head. He was fanatical about accuracy, CASTING, machining, and replacing brass domes; adding metal lattice to some tenders; marker lamps with jewels; kit bashing the best K series plows, especially for the 455 with that big welded patch which I've never seen modeled. Once I painted and detailed the locos, and added PFM-II sound to half of them, all his upgrades were to make those now miniscule brass models the spitting image of a photo of that loco.
In return, I painted and detailed a small chunk of his K-27 fleet, and gave him a stack of excess brass rolling stock. I got the much better end of the deal. Over time, I think he possessed and transformed every single version of the K-27, early and late including all rebuilds, plus dozens of other brass pieces.
In summary, i feel like I've lost a brother. I'll miss Dave terribly.
Bob Cook, his best friend, should reveal some details as they become available. The 20, 455, and 42, all Dave's work below at Placerville. Closer is the 42 with K-series plow at Placerville.
In manus tuas, Domine, commendo spiritum meum, David Garcia.

I talked to Dave the night before he had his heart bypass surgery and once after. In previous conversations he talked about donating some of his collections or finding homes for other things. But I have almost no details. I understand his extended family is quite large.

I will miss our long rambling  phone conversations. They were all purely golden. Few that I have known in the hobby knew as much about it or as many of the players for the last 60 plus years.

Like I said earlier today, his passing leave a mighty big hole behind.

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.

Dave had a brother with co-ownership of a ranch in No Cal. I'm sure he'll be involved, but I know nothing about his brother. Bob Cook would know.

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.
