A Celebration of Life for Rod McClure took place at the Western Pacific Railroad Museum Saturday July 9, 2016.  A commemorative caboose train made two runs pulled by the historic WP 1503 with engine crew Andrew McCarron and Greg Elems.  Many friends and family brought stories to share and celebrated life, just the way Rod would have wanted.
