Regret to advise we have lost another AC&Y fan, Society member and friend. Wade Griffis battled lung cancer for the past year, but ultimately succumbed to the disease. Wade was a talented model railroader and purveyor of a line of custom decals (Black Swamp decals) which included many custom decals for AC&Y covered hoppers, hoppers and boxcars. He also took over distribution of AC&Y decals previously available through the AC&YHS company store. Wade authored a great article published in the Society magazine covering construction of an AC&Y Mather boxcar using a Sunshine resin kit. He was a positive contributor to the AC&Y Society and ever present at Annual Meetings and Train Shows throughout Ohio and Michigan. Wade will be missed!
