From time to time, the officers of Potomac Division receive a request for assistance in disposing of
someone’s model railroad. The request typically comes from a survivor or executor who doesn’t know
much about our hobby and who has many other things on his or her mind at the time.
PD maintains a report "Estate Planning for Model Railroaders" that addresses all related issues in depth.
This report includes narratives, under the heading Voice of Experience, that describe real-life
experiences in order share a wide range of situations and experiences.
It also applies to model railroaders who are uninterested or unable to continue enjoying the hobby.
