To Whom It May Concern
I met Ernie July 2006 at the Train Mountain Meet. When I saw the 5400 for the first time, I was in awe. It looked like a museum piece and looked like it was made like a Rolex watch. For the next several days, I asked a lot of questions of Ernie as I knew nothing about Steam. I was working with another manufacturer who was going to build me a steam engine, battery powered. Yes, a lot of my friends laughed at me about that. I was somewhat interested in purchasing an engine like 5400. As the week went on, Ernie and I talked about taking the 5400 for the maiden run. I asked Mike Venezia of Little Engines and Chuck Hackett if they would join us and give me their valued opinions. Mike decided that he wanted to run the train.
If you have any questions, please either call or email me.
I have known Ernie for a number of years and cannot tell you how impressed I am with his creativity and dedication to perfection. Ernie is one of those rare people who can quickly understand what you want and then can translate that into reality.
|I have known Ernie for almost ten years and consider him not only a good friend but a most intelligent individual.|
When I first met Ernie, it was to see if he was interested in restoring my 1954 Cadillac. He said that he would only if he could do a #1 job, which was what I wanted. He was right, it was done to perfection. Since the 54 Cadillac, he has done my 1931 Cadillac V12, which was done even better and was more difficult. It was in fact, judged 100 points at the Classic Car Club of America, “Now that’s perfection”. The best is none to good for Ernie.
Over the years I have seen Ernie design and manufacture many pieces of equipment with precision that is just about impossible to imagine, whether it be made out of metal, wood, plastic etc.
Ernie is a reliable person who won’t do a job that is not done to perfection and with a whole lot of pride.
If you want a job done at 100%, get Ernie. If you want less than perfection, go somewhere else.
I would recommend Ernie to anyone and will back this letter upon anyone who would contact me.
