About Bob

Started Western Railway Equipment Services in 1996 with just a few items and watched it grow into one of the major sources of affordable track equipment in the US. I took a leave from the company in 2012 but now, September 2017 I am back and ready to make some major changes in the way the company has been run in my absence. So look for changes and let me know what you think of them.
