    Default Departure

    With sadness, I note MIKEinNE AKA Mike DiMaio, author of the original PRR Middle Division and with the work of many developers morphed into PRR Eastern Region, passed away, Providence, RI, February 19, 2020, after a long battle with cancer.

    Rest in Peace, Mike.

    Mike accomplished a lot getting the original PRR ER launched in the days before OR. Over the years I'd lost track of him, sorry to hear of his passing.

    As I was (or am if still...) the Secretary with Mike's team on PRR-ER with other close members, Mike has been very ill for some time, he still has worked for his PRR-ER proudly on his own before his passing. My condolences to Mike and his family.

    Follow your PRR position lights to high green Mike!
