Sad news indeed. Harold was a great guy.  I always enjoyed talking to him at our conventions.  RIP Harold.  We will miss you.

Railroad history generally, the Norfolk & Western Historical Society, and the Virginian Enthusiast community have suffered a major loss.  
We got word today that Harold Davenport passed away on January 21st.  We have no further details yet, but those of us who knew Harold know that he had battled cancer for several years.  
Harold was a former Director, and an active and loyal Society member.  He was very involved at conventions, especially with seminars and as the Contest Guy.  The extent of his knowledge and his willingness to share that knowledge were simply amazing.  He was a fine gentleman, and a pleasure to be around.  We will miss him a lot.
He was especially helpful on Virginian equipment, prototype and modeling.  He was memorable for his participation in both the Modeling Committee--which he chaired for years--and with the Virginian Interest Group.
Hopefully some of the folks who knew him longer and better than I did will post additional information and memories.
