There are modelers and then there are influential modelers who by their knowledge and there abilities change the direction of the hobby. Richard Hendrickson was an influential modeler. He contributed to many areas of the hobby with his area being freight cars. The list of articles and books is over a hundred. His expertise in things Santa Fe is documented in the articles and books. An early participant in the RPM movement. He was instrumental in pushing the hobby to more prototype fidelity in freight cars. We wish to say thanks to Richard and give our condolences to his wife Sandra.
