                                 David Bunge
                                 1937-2017

        David Bunge died last week. Dave and Don Kaiser were my first two contributors to Columbus Railroads in 2006 when it started. You will find “Photo by David Bunge” scattered throughout. He came from a railroad family with uncles and a grandfather that worked at the PRR 20th Street shops. He himself was a contract photographer for the local Columbus PRR management as the Penn Central era started.

        Dave was especially helpful to me with his photographic memory of the Columbus streetcar, interurban and trolley coach history. Dave was the one I could always go to for help analyzing a historic photo. Dave will be missed here at Columbus Railroads.
