Default One of my train pics used on the Dr Phil Show...

Here's a new one for me...
After dinner I get a call that shows as 'Paramount Pictures' on the Caller ID (I'm figuring it's a telemarketer). I pick up & it's someone from the Dr Phil Show. It turns out they're doing a show on "how a daughter's obsession with her computer might be a trainwreck waiting to happen."...and they want to use one of my WMSR images to accentuate the 'train' part.

We negotiated a price ($200), I uploaded the pic, an invoice & a W9 form...and the show taped yesterday with my pic included. I'm not sure when it will air, she said she'd let me know....it should be in the next couple weeks.

Just one of those random cool things that comes along with having a web presence. They found the image via a google search...came across my website. Pretty luck, actually.

Thought you guys would enjoy the story.
Thanks,
Bill

Very good! I'm sure we'll see it in Australia in a few years!

If Judge Judy is anything to go by, Free To Air TV is quite behind here.

Thanks everyone.
Hey Walter, yeah, I'll be down there a few times again this year. I usually ride Cass as a passenger a couple times each year...and I come to Railfan Weekend for the photo ops. See you there. Thanks...

Thanks Bill for sharing that with everyone. We see some pretty interesting contacts come through the site from time to time but few of them make their way to the forum.

I've got something cooking but I'm a cynic. I have to see it to believe it... and then to post it!

I have sold a number of images as a result of RailPictures. The global reach of this site is certainly a bonus!
