Bob Alderman

Bob (and Ruth) at the YMRG 10th Birthday Bash

It is with great sadness that Sheila has asked us to tell you that Bob passed away peacefully last night after a courageous battle with Motor Neuron Disease. She has asked not to be contacted by phone for the time being.

Bob was a founder member of YMRG, and for many years our Secretary. He was a prolific and inspirational modeller, who has passed on his skills and knowledge via books, magazine articles, Missenden, the O Gauge Guild and EMGS manuals.

His company and friendship will be sorely missed, and our thoughts are with Sheila, David, Ruth and family at this sad time.


One thought on “Bob Alderman

  1. Expected but still a great shock to myself. I’ve known Bob since 1967 and he was known as one of life’s ‘great blokes’ and an undisputed great railway modeller. RIP Bob and thanks for everything you gave.
