Ernie Robart died in Albuquerque, NM on December 24, 2018.   Ernie is survived by his wife, Lourdes Catalan Robart; his brother, Myron Robart; his niece, Myrene Eklund; and his nephew, David Robart, all of Albuquerque.   Ernie is also survived by his numerous friends who enjoyed his company as a world-class photographer and railroad historian.

A Memorial Service was held for Ernie on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at French Funerals.   Memorial contributions may be made to the Friends of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad or the New Mexico Steam Locomotive & Railroad Historical Society.   Please visit our online guestbook for Ernie at www.FrenchFunerals.com.

Read what other kind words folks have written about Ernie:

Ernie will be missed by all that knew this gentle and quiet man.   He painted all our letters on the tender and locomotive the summer of 2017 and planned to paint the smokebox door once she was hot again.   Ernie was a mentor to many and he always had good information about the history of our railroads.   He loved taking photos and showing people his handiwork when he returned from a photo shoot.   Rest in Peace our friend.



Will You Help Us Reach This Goal In 2019 ?

The Tool Car Project is still on !   Our very own NMSX 3939 (formerly RPCX 3939), is in Bellevue, Ohio and will be ready to come to it's new home here in Albuquerque this spring.   We've raised enough money to purchase it, make it rail-worthy and get it shipped to New Mexico, but we still a need a last bit of funding in order to finish refurbishing the inside with creature-comforts, a generator and our high-volume air compressor to assist with cold-starts in time for AT&SF 2926 to hit the road.   We also plan to give it a nice, new exterior paint job.   We're so close to finishing the funding on this endeavor, so please re-consider a generous donation and help us finally get across the finish line !
