It has been reported on a Yahoo group that Wolfgang Dudler has passed away. I can't verify this personally.

He was an MRH author and I admired his work.

I'm greatly sorry to hear that

I'm greatly sorry to hear that, I very much admired his modeling and his willingness share.

Thanks for letting us know.

He will be throughly missed

Sorry to hear about it.  I really enjoyed reading everything he put out. He was an outstanding modeler and a friend to anyone who asked.  I saw on the MR forum that Crandell was a friend and posted some updates. 

I hope someone continues his personal website

First inspiration

Before I got into model railroading I looked around the net to see what was going on, and quickly found Wolfgang's website.  Then I found out how to make the site into English....lol. I have to say I repeatedly go back to it for ideas and inspiration, as well as his 'how-to's' which explains things easily to reproduce for any novice modeler.  As a person just starting out he certainly showed me what's possible in this hobby.

Wonder if his site will stay up??

I saw this shocked and really unhappy...

When I started to do research about how I wanted to build my layout, his site is one of the reasons I decided to build my own turn outs. Further, his site is the reason I went with CVT for my yard and sidings. His site has a large amount of information for all of us. I wrote an email sending condolences and pleading for his site to remain up.

I saw his posts hear and other places, and he even took the time to respond to one of my emails. I am sure he got many. I never met him. But through his work I felt I knew him. And I feel like I have lost someone. I wonder if he knew what an influence he was to people all over the world. If there is an afterlife, I hope he has found peace and is getting to share his train knowledge in the great railroad in the sky. RIP
