Come on in for an old fashion visit!

 

Something to be said for this old shop!

Date: Sun, Jan 3, 2016

Bob,

I am the bearded fellow from Mississippi who was in your shop last
week.  You cannot believe how excited I was after we left your shop.
The old saying "like a kid in a candy store" comes about as close as
anything I can come up with.  Visiting with you and being surrounded
with the massive amount of model train supplies was a total trip down
memory lane.   There are very few shops like yours nation wide and you
cannot imagine how much enjoyment I will have telling my friends about
it.  I sure wish I had room to put my layout together but nothing
possible until I can have my shop to myself without the cats that live
there now.

I just wanted to email you and tell you how much that visit meant to
me. Thanks for all that you do for model train enthusiasts in your area.

Charles

Dear esthershobby,

The item arrived safely here in Japan. I like this item a lot. Will take a good care on this. Thank you very much for the fast shipping.
I should have e-mailed you earlier, but I came back home from abroad just recently.

Esthers Hobby is famous among N scale society, and I would like to visit your shop in person someday.

Thanks again & best regards,

Yosh

Hi,
My wife, daughters and I were in your shop today from Ohio.  I want to thank you very much for your hospitality.  I could have spent the whole weekend shopping in your store.  You have a very fine shop and are a joy to talk to.  I hope to be back soon and plan on buying online from you.  You have peaked my interest in the Bachman N scale.  I was eyeing the B&O 2-8-8-4 and the NKP 765!
Sincerely,
Steve
Troy, Ohio

 

Hi

Had the pleasure of visiting your shop while I was visiting family in Pittsburgh.

What a pleasant time I had chatting with you and shopping at your store. I can assure you next time I’m in the area I’ll stop by. In this day and age that down-home friendly service is something they can’t download on the internet…..yet.

Best regards,

Gary

Yep, that's right. I made your building and have it on my store so people can 3d Print it. Cost is 35.00 but that is cause Shapeways charges almost 34.00 to print it. I charge 1.00 for my design fees. Now everyone can have this for their N scale layout.
