Dirty Water says farewell to George Sanborn, who knew more about trains in Boston than anyone:
... R.I.P George. It is not often that a person can make his passion his profession as well.
Commute-a-holic also says goodbye:
... George was able to take his passion for trains and apply it to his day-to-day job. While he was cantankerous at times, it was really nice to work with someone who was so passionate about their field. He would always take the time to speak to any train enthusiast - from a 4 year old who liked "Thomas the Train" through MIT graduate students. Everyone who was interested in trains could spend time with George to learn first hand experience about trains and mass transit.
I'm sure George is riding a train somewhere.
