Traindame… Uber… Omaha !


What a *Super Fun time the Traingineers and I had last week in Omaha setting up and running trains on the BNSF Layout for the Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting!

In his usual fashion, Warren, stopped by EVERY business on the convention floor before opening to the public, hopped out of his golf cart to take pictures… selfies, chit chat, and give everyone a thumbs up of appreciation for all the effort that goes into preparing this convention for his shareholders to experience.

Personally, I had a true ‘Rock Star’ moment that I will absolutely NEVER forget… My last Uber ride to the convention started like the other two I’d been on except when my response to his question, “Are you a Shareholder?” was…

“No, I am the President of TW TrainWorx out of Dallas, Texas and we’re here setting up the BNSF Layout.”

Uber Driver Bob’s reaction was PRICELESS! (thank God we were stopped at a red light)

He said with a gasp, “YOU are TW TRAINWORX???? You, You, YOU MUST BE TRAINDAME!! Oh my goodness – you guys are just the BEST – – I LOVE WHAT YOU DO….Oh Oh man, I’ve never wished my son could be with me when I’m driving for UBER but MAN DO I WISH HE WAS WITH ME RIGHT NOW!!! I can hardly wait to tell him who I drove today.”

Knock me over with a feather… TW TrainWorx is making tracks and people from Coast to Coast are cheering us on to continue providing top notch customer service, tremendously awesome products and custom train layouts that are literally changing people’s lives and making dreams come true!! So blessed to be a part of this toy train niche of super Traintastic people like YOU… such a joy!

Now you are in “the know” of Traindame’s Rock Star moment in Omaha : )

***BREAKING NEWS… THIS JUST IN FROM BOB… MY UBER DRIVER***

Uber driver, Bob and I are members of the OGR Forum and I posted on forum the other night about my Uber Omaha experience and here is BOB’s REPLY to me… a direct cut & paste:

Good Evening,

I was honored to be able to meet TrainDame from TW Trainworx this weekend in my capacity
as an UBER driver. As you might imagine, driving UBER doesn’t involve many
insightful and engaging conversations (especially between midnight and 3AM),
but to start the morning off talking trains with someone who is truly
a key cog in the hobby was an absolute honor.
Would love to cart around some more Hi-Rail enthusiasts if I get the chance!

Here is a link to the actual posting on the OGR Forum: Traindame… Uber…Omaha
