Our ftp is broken for traincity.com so we cannot update inventory. Hopefully this will be resolved soon. It doesn't affect this site at all since we have the two site servers located in two different places.
I am here all alone this afternoon because John has left for a Vegas Hockey tournament and everyone else has gone for the day.
We are low on inventory right now but have given several quotes on some really nice collections. Hopefully we'll be buying at least one of them. If you know of someone selling a collection that you aren't interested in, please let them know we are aggressively looking for new collections. (When we are aggressively looking, we are paying more!!)
I will tell you the train business has changed over the years. I have now been in the business 36 years and it is hard to believe they have gone by this fast.
Earlier today I was reminiscing about our store in Erie and all those wonderful years of serving those customers. Makes me feel a little sad that they have gone by. I even have dreams about our old store up there from time to time. Actually a nightmare sometimes about the holidays approaching and I haven't ordered any sets yet. And finally when the holidays are there, I still haven't ordered any sets, so there won't be any sets for that year either! (I'll guarantee that never happened, so why do I continually dream about it??)
Dreams are funny. Another part to that dream goes that instead of moving to Florida we are moving to Houston, TX, but have made no preparations to move and we are moving tomorrow!!!
If you are a shrink I hope those dreams don't mean anything bad! :)
Well I will be dog sitting for the rest of the week. We have two beautiful dogs usually at the warehouse each day. Orion is our dog and he is a little older and a less peppy Jack Russell. Willey is John's dog (whom I'm watching while John is out of town), and he is a crazy 1 year old mixed terrier. They get along pretty well and even help when we are cataloging trains. (Moral support.)
I'm rambling here because no one else is here to bother me and I got my work done already. Think I am going to official part time status soon since John is taking over eventually. Don't think I'll ever leave this place though.
Well once again thanks so much for your business. Don't worry, we'll have plenty of new train deals coming!!
