I just wanted to write you and send my thanks for introducing me to the Pacific Western Rail Systems new "Extra Net System".
The "Extra Net", offers me so many things, to be honest I would like to see this system in place with other retailers of non train items I frequent (I'm into astronomy as well).
I can't recall how many times before the "Extra Net" I ordered an item multiple times not remembering what's in my collection, or how many times in the past, I miss a limited availability item say from Micro trains.
The "Extra Net System" let me see what Micro Trains is releasing for the next month, I as always missed those hot items and now with the "Extra Net System" I can keep a eye on all the manufacturers I like through the "Extra Net" and watch as their new items become available.
The "Extra Net" even lets me know in advance when new items are scheduled to be released so I can pre-order them before everybody finds out and buys them all up.
The "Extra Net" also makes your job easier it's like a 24/7 online PWRS representative. And because "The Extra Net" doesn't need a coffee and cake break in the morning, you can pass those savings onto me the customer.
My collection has never looked better.
I now have items I thought I would never have, because I can keep a good eye on all the new items coming out.
I don't spend my allowance on items I already have, money saved using the "Extranet" lets me purchase 1 or 2 more items Imight not have been able to afford.
I can keep up to date with Micro Trains new releases as you publish the new months release.
The "Extra Net" is like my own personal database of what I"ve purchased, and what is in the postal system in transit to me.
Also items it keeps track of items, I may be interested in and how much time I have left to think about it, if I want to purchase them.
I can tag them as "Maybe Interested" in case I've spent this months allowance and want to get them next month or have them shelved in my "Goodie Box" for next months shipment.
The new "Extra Net System" from PWRS has allowed me to complete my train collection. Thank you so much for getting this idea up and running.
I think everybody who is a model railroader should be able to use the new "Extra Net System" and take advantage of all its wonderful features.
I remember you talking to me on the telephone telling me all its wonderful ideas and me saying well maybe I'll think about it.
Gosh I can't imagine my collection now had I not started using The "Extra Net".
I would still be scratching my head wondering were to get half of the items I have here.
Well done Pacific Western, and again thank you.
