Congratulations Andre!

Just finished placing my order via paypal and downloading the equipment packages from train-sim. Can't wait to start running on the North Arkansas! Thanks for all the work you put in to this route, and especially for keeping us all informed during construction.

Regards,

John

Andre,

just to be sure: Does the price of $ 18.95 include shipping to Europe?

If not, what would be the price to have the CD delivered to this side of the ocean? smile.gif

Cheers,
uli

Thanks all! Keep those cards and letters comin' in. smile.gif

I have the first small batch ready to mail today. (Yours included CyberJim!) Bear in mind that tomorrow the USPS will be closed in reverence to the death of former President Ronald Reagan.

uli:

Let's give it a try at the posted price of $18.95. If I get quite a few overseas sales and the shipping is far more than expected, I'll need to make adjustments for future overseas purchases.

Thanks uli!

NOTE TO ALL PURCHASERS:

The engines, rolling stock, and sound pack are INCLUDED on the CD! (Mentioned at the website.)

No need for purchasers to download the freeware option at Train-sim.com!

The upload to Train-sim.com was simply a gift to the V scale/sim community.

You'll get your equipment via the CD... so don't sweat the download part!

It finally came up - not sure why refesh dident work the fisr couple of times. Order is placed. By the way don't get freaked by the "unverified address" from PayPal they consider anything other than the billing address on the credit card as unverified and I have no secure way to take the delivery at my apartment. dry.gif

Hey, relax jbt1024, I bet you'll have it by Saturday. No mail tomorrow, of course, because of the observing of Ronald Reagan's passing.

Andre, I feel as excited about this as you do, believe me. I know you have been waiting for this moment for some time, as I am sure everyone else, including myself has. We have all been beside you as you posted your first pictures all the way to the last. So, we are excited too. And no one could be happier for you than I am. Your a great guy my friend and I wish you the greatest success with it. I know it will do well, because of your being its author and because of its uniqueness, the steam, the era, the place, the activities. This all adds up to lots of fun and enjoyment, as well as a learning experience to boot. Now, you just can't beat that combination. And isn't that why we are all here anyway. I hope your route spawns more like it. Steam, the turn of the century of maybe even the roaring twenties with the cars, the night spots, (hmmm, that sounds better the more I talk about it. Hey, anyone out there want to do a roaring twenties route? I would love that), anyway, as I was saying. I bet it spawns a lot of similar type routes. I hope that is one of the results of this endeavor. But the best result would be for you to be successful with this and have it encourage you to do another, and another, because I think you have a flair for it, much in the same vein as Rich G. does. And that ain't a bad thing.

Anyway, congrats again Andre, and thank you for everything. You are a good man with a good heart and soul. I wish you all the success in the world.

Tim

Thanks again to all of you for all the words of encouragement and purchases.

I received a personal email thanking me for producing the route, and the person very insightfully indicated that likely the total sales won't really be adequate compensation for the effort. I've long ago accepted that possibility.

However overall (frustration times notwithstanding!), I did enjoy bringing this to you, and hope that it will be a lot of fun for all that have purchased it. The gist of the way this emailer expressed it was: "My $18.95 isn't enough to adequately pay for your time, but it's a way I can say thank you and give you an atta boy at the same time."

jbt1024:

It's 11:10 our time. Just got home from some obligations. I will be burning CD's and packaging tonight until I'm finished. However, the mail will not go out until Saturday. I hope to have all orders up to the last minute on their way before the USPS closes on Saturday.

Very doubtful you'll receive your CD until sometime mid next week.

Andre Ming

laugh.gif Yeah for Andre!!! Hip, hip Horrahhhhhhh! Put my Palpal in yesterday. Hope you got it. Like many that have spoken before me, Thank you, thank you for putting out a Product that will be totally unique, and totally different than anything else out there. It is also true that you will never get rich doing a project like this, but I can tell that this isn't why you did it in the first place. I used to Paint Model Railroad rolling stock, Engines, etc. I know I never charged enough for my work (time, supplies, etc), but I did it because I enjoyed doing it, and the looks on their faces when I was done was well worth it. I hope you feel the same way with all the positive feedback you are getting. Like I have said before, one of the biggest "Pluses" you did was to keep us INFORMED!! Nobody likes to kept in the dark ph34r.gif. All we want is a short "hows it coming" now and then. Sure too bad some other Developers can't follow your lead. Anyway, thanks again, and I am looking forward to recieving it. I'm not at work today (I work for the Post Office) so NO Mail today. Yep, I have that much clout!! biggrin.gif Take care,
Dave cool.gif
