Steam Excursion Pioneer Earl Gil passed away earlier today. Known for his "Morris County Central" operation, which ran on the M&E, before moving to the NYS&W. The details, from Al....... :(

Hi All,

I learned of Earle's passing from John Snogans upon arriving in Hoboken this morning.
As one person who knew him put it, "An era has passed". He was one of the pioneers of the steam tourist railway industry.

Hello All,

Very Sad news indeed...

Joe Krygoski just called me...Earle passed away just a little bit ago (it is now 8:47 am), Friday, June 8th.

There are no details as yet on funeral arrangements, etc. When they are known, I will pass them on. Please pass this along to anyone else I do not have on this list that knew Earle.

Say a prayer for Earle....

Take care,
Steve
