About Us


Rene Campbell  1961 - 2009

In Memory

Rene Estelle (Haight) Campbell  1961 - 2009.   Rene passed in her sleep on November 3rd, 2009, after a 7 month battle with breast cancer. She was 48 years old. Rene and Steve have operated S&R Models since 1983.  Rene's infectious smile, laughter and positive attitude were always a welcome touch for the Soul and a pleasant greeting at Train Shows.

Most visitors to our booth spent time talking to her - and I don't blame them, she was always more interesting :).  Her family and many friends miss her Greatly. We are soothed by the Gratefulness of having known her in our lives, and the examples of Love that she left for, and in us

The Afterglow

Rene left an imprint upon all who knew her. In her actions, she showed us how to Love one another, to be accepting of each other - wherever we happen to be in our own Journey. She lived a full life in those short 48 years, and lived life to the fullest.  

Much like the land on which Rene lived, She gave us a sense of calmness, of comfort and stability, refreshing our spirits. We thought that, like the land, Rene would always be with us….. and indeed, in many ways, she will be.

Enjoy The Afterglow!
