Reached A Milestone Today - My 200th Product Photo Tool
« on: August 09, 2013, 11:21:32 AM »

I started TrainCat back in 2005 when I thought someone should do this Electrical Tower that I saw everywhere while on the drive out to the San Diego Collector Convention.


Eight years later . . . I sent out my 200th product photo tool today for the Mojave Signal Bridge in N.


I wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of you for the help and words of encouragement that have come my way over the last year. So many of you have reached out privately and publicly here and at Springfield & Atlanta. The little unselfish act of reaching out and letting someone know that there are those that care has more meaning than anyone will fathom. But I do. While I am on several forums, TheRailWire is where my home is at and all of you have treated me like a member of your own family.

One month ago, I did not think this milestone would ever be reached.

Thank you all !!

Regards
Bob Knight

Bob,
We can't thank you enough for all your products, your willingness to banter with us, and even your willingness to step up and tell us when you needed something other then trains.  I know I "speak" for a lot of folks when I say that we wouldn't have it any other way - and we're still here for whatever you need.

Congratulations Bob.  I hope everything is on the upward trend once again and many events of the last year can become part of the past.

Seeing you posting here again, and the contents of your posts seems to hint that the events in your life are turning in a positive direction.   That would be great news for you and for your customers (many of whom are also your friends).
Congratulations on reaching this milestone Bob!  It's really good to see you back!

Bob .. glad to see you are going again .. IMO, there's nothing like your signals .. and signal bridges on the market today at the reasonable prices you ask for.

Family and health always come first --- but I have lots of dollars waiting on you when you get back up to notch eight on the throttle ..

200, and hopefully many more, sir. 

As you know, I've bought and built your products and they are absolutely 1st class.   your truss bridge has been a
featured scenic item in a lot of my model photos lately.  It's the nicest looking structure on my whole layout.

And to anyone out there who hasn't had the privilege of meeting Bob in person at a train show, I can tell you all that
as a gentleman, he is also1st class.

I freely admit that I jumped up in my seat when I saw you start posting again, and sounding a little brighter.
My best wishes to you and your family.

Well done Bob, I like many others appreciate and value the detail and accuracy you put in to your kits. The items I have built from your range have left me with an inner glow of achievement and pride. I am always quick to refer people to your products knowing that they will not be disappointed. Congratulations on a milestone reached, to both you and those who have supported you on your journey, from an admirer of your work.
