Since 2010, Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash along with Traingineers George Watson and Mike Ellis have had the opportunity to meet and have pictures taken with the “Oracle of Omaha” Warren Buffett and a dream of mine was to be included in on the fun this year!
Well my friends…dreams do come true!!
I have had the pleasure of corresponding with Mr. Buffett via email since last fall when along with sending him a photo book I’d made of the BNSF layout process, I also invited him to our first TrainWorx Layout Festival (he would’ve been there but was attending his high school reunion). I asked if I could get my photo taken with him at this year’s Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s meeting, as well as have him sign my copy of the BNSF photo book… arrangements were made, the time was set and this lady had the rare opportunity and pleasure of meeting and getting pictures with a truly remarkable man on May 3, 2013 in Omaha, Nebraska.
Scratch that off the bucket list 🙂
Mr. Matt Rose, the CEO of BNSF was also there and he chimed right up and said…”Ok now, it’s time for the annual TrainWorx picture” How awesome is that???
Here is the photo he took with my iPhone – left to right; Traingineer George Watson, Mr. Buffett, Traindame, Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash and Traingineer, Mike Ellis:
