Back from OMAHA!

Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting
May 3, 2014
Omaha, Nebraska USA

What an Absolutely  “TrainTASTIC” trip I had with the Traingineers at this year’s Berkshire Hathaway meeting!! I especially enjoyed meeting with Mr. Buffett again and having the incredible opportunity to spend time with him and really appreciated his genuine pleasure to take pictures with the TW Traingineers along with our special guest, Lionel’s VP of Marketing – Mike Phillips. Check out all the smiles…

I was standing on the other end of the table while Mr. Buffett was talking with Mr. Rose from BNSF, and the question arose from Mr. Buffett the desire to have an even bigger layout next year and I chimed in.. “We’d love to design an additional section to your layout!! So… shhhhh don’t tell anybody, totally UNOFFICIAL, but perhaps Roger will soon be in BNSF Layout Addition Design Mode and that would be SOOOOO COOOOOOL!!

“Really, I can run the trains?”

“Great job!”

“Look…. !”

“Totally Fabulous”

“You guys do amazing train layouts!”

“AWESOME!!!”

Traindame meets Warren Buffett

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:
