I remember a fellow by the name of Tom Kerrigan that lived in Glen Rock and was a model rail-roader that built numerous buildings for displays. He built me a roundhouse and a wharehouse one time and I still have them, although I do not have a set-up anymore. That guy was quite the builder and also one of the most intelligent people that I ever talked to. Is he still in business?

Mr. Kerrigan passed away several years ago. Yes, he was very intelligent, especially when it came to baseball. He was an encyclopedia of baseball knowledge and trivia. He contributed a lot to Glen Rock and Susquehannock, where he taught for many years.

We hope to walk down to the train display on Sunday. I highly recommend it.

Sorry to hear about Tom. I moved back to York County from Akron last year and wanted to visit him next month. WOW! You are soooo right. He did know his baseball. He lived a good, long life and I ocnsider myself lucky to have known such a fine gentleman.

I'm almost sure he is no longer with us-If your talking about Tom. I had him as a Teacher back in the 70's and he had a wonderful train display at his home-super nice man-he was in his 60's then so do the math

My father passed away on April 1,2007 at his home following a brief battle with cancer. He was almost 85, and had been active until January, 2007.
My mother and I sold off the remaining builidings and there are no plans to continue the buiness.
You can view his obituary and post a comment at legacy.com . Type in Thomas A. Kerrigan in the name search. The obit will remain on line permanently.
