We wish to remember the recent passing of fellow NASG members and/or S-scale modelers and collectors on this page.
Dan Waskes passed away in the last week of June 2017. He had been suffering from health problems for a while. He was a long-time NASG member. Dan lived in Canada for a while, but lived in northern Georgia at the time of his passing. His modeling interest were in the New Haven and the Canadian National. Dan was a founding member of Louisiana's Crescent City S Gaugers.
David G. Felmley, of Pittsburgh, PA, passed away peacefully on April 12, 2017 after holding off cancer for seventeen years.
Dave was a life-long S-scale modeler, an excellent model builder (S, Sn3, Sn2), and active member of the Pittsburgh S Gaugers.
Dave worked for Westinghouse Electric Company, developing skills as an engineer and machinist which he put to good use in his modeling.
Dave was listed in the S Gauge Herald 1963 Yearbook which shows NMRA membership; he later joined NESGA and NASG. At times his knowledge was tapped as a contest judge for NASG, and he served as convention car coordinator for the 1990 NASG convention.
Dave owned Queen Tool & Mfg. Co., which marketed two kits based on the Rex Engineering flat car in the 1960s.
He had a twelve-foot modular layout built to S-Mod standards which participated in the 1990 Pittsburgh NASG/NMRA convention. During his modeling career, he scratchbuilt, kitbashed, and constructed kits for an astonishing variety of S locomotives, rolling stock, and structures, including a number for the PSG modular layout. In addition to scale model building, he was also an avid collector of toy vehicles, HO (primarily European) and pre-war Lionel tinplate trains, and he was a co-author of Lionel Trains, 1900-1943 Standard of the World.
Dave was a quiet mover, kind and helpful to others, and extremely knowledgeable about prototype and model trains, and S-scale history in particular. He will be greatly missed by the PSG club and the S-scale community.
