Bob was my LHS and I have lived in AZ for 30 years. He always was so friendly, had the best custom Atlas runs of anthracite roads, and just was a pleasure to deal with in so many ways. I was so disappointed when he sold his business, but of course understand completely it was his right to do so. I have missed him all these years later.
I also bought a lot of Atlas O from Bob. He was a great guy. One time I ordered a B&M boxcar from him and it arrived quickly as did all my purchases from him. About a week later another B&M boxcar showed up that I didn’t order. The same exact model. I contacted Bob and told him I didn’t order it but I would pay for it. Bob insisted that I keep it free of charge. What a guy! How many other dealers would do that? I too was sad when he sold the business but he certainly had a right to retire. He was definitely one of the top if not the top Atlas O dealer back in the day.
I purchased all of my Atlas engines and my Atlas Track from him as well. I remember him calling me and informing me that my two Atlas C628 were in and he was going to take a few days off to care for his wife who was ill. I prayed with him and he thanked me. He called me a few weeks later and informed me that he was closing the store to care for his wife and he had mailed me the engines even though I had not paid for them. I gave him my credit card info and that afternoon the engines were delivered. He was truly one of a kind a warm and kindhearted gentleman.
