WINTER FANTASY52

Well over a half-century ago, W. Raymond Hicks met and fell in love with "Wild Mary". . .it must be true love as his ardor has never flagged.
The affair began when he was a young boy growing up in New Jersey. . .an extended rail trip over most of the United States whetted his appetite for the mysteries of external combustion.
In his early twenties, he moved to Baltimore to take an insurance company job and ventured to Hillen Station. The sights and smells excited his interest and Ray Hicks was in love. . .from then on, regardless of where posted around the nation, Wild Mary was his best girl.
His devotion to Western Maryland earned him the title "unofficial historian". . .in fact, when the road decided to dispose of old records some years ago, they gave him the opportunity to preserve historic records.To this day, a query about WM history directed to their offices will probably end up on his desk. . .a chore to some, a pleasure to him.
Curiously, Ray didn't become a permanent resident of Maryland until retirement in 1966. He and his lovely wife reside in a charming home in Westminster, with two fine views. . .outside are the rolling hills of Maryland and inside a well-balanced collection of WM memorabilia. Active and outgoing men tend to be lucky. . .along the way, Ray acquired a son-in-law who shares his passion for things railroad.
This is not the first time Ray's work has been published by us. John Kelly's B&O/3 included many of his photos.
We have personally tested his kindness - some years ago he was most generous in assisting us with Magnolia Cutoff photos and data which were of great help in modelling the Concrete Wall area east of Paw Paw, W. Va., on the B&O.
