In the style of – Denver Union Station – Classic Landmark Series #80202
Limited Edition of ONLY 66 (Sixty-six) Signed and Numbered Pieces
When TW TrainWorx Creative Director and Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, first visited Denver in 1966, the #1 “To Do” on his Vacation List was to ride the Denver & Rio Grande Ski Train from Denver Union Station to Winter Park, a wish his Uncle John Farkash delightfully granted! As a 15 year young “Certified Train Nut” from New Jersey who had regularly been exposed to New York’s Grand Central Terminal and the (then) recently demolished New York Pennsylvania Station, the scale and grandeur of Denver’s Union Station was excitedly impressive, and the day trip up and back into the Colorado Rockies was enshrined into his Railroading Life Experience!
Fast Forward 50 years later…
Since the inception of our TW TrainWorx Classic Landmark Series “In the Style of” Legendary American Train Stations, the Denver Union Station has been high on our customer’s “WANTED” list. With our decision this winter to participate in the Rocky Mountain Train Show for the first time, we decided to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Roger’s trip to Denver by developing an ‘O’ Gauge Sized Structure based on the iconic, Denver Union Station. It is with great pleasure that we announce the introduction of our latest Classic Landmark Series, Model #80202, in the style of the Denver Union Station!
This impressive 36.25″ W x 16.25″ D x 16.5″ H model depicts the highly detailed front and back of the Iconic Central portion of the current Station Structure, designed by Denver architects Gove and Walsh, built in the Beaux-Arts style and opened in 1914. It includes the massive, signature “UNION STATION Travel by Train” sign that was added in 1952, and while not a true 1:48th scale model of the station, it has been architecturally compressed, with entrance doors that readily accommodate and relate to scale 1:48th figures.
With our decision last year to develop this project to commemorate Roger’s visit to “Denver’s Front Door” fifty years ago, it was determined that this homage to Denver Railroading would be a limited edition of ONLY 66 Signed and Numbered Pieces, each a Handcrafted, One Of Kind, “Art of the Train” made by our talented crafts people in Dallas, Texas, USA.
We invite the collectors and modelers of the Union Pacific; Denver & Rio Grande Western; Denver, South Park & Pacific; Colorado Central; Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe; Chicago, Burlington and Quincy; Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific; Colorado & Southern; and Amtrak Railroads to take advantage of this exclusive opportunity to own what will become a unique collector’s piece that will be the centerpiece of Your Own Model Railroad Layout or Model Train Collection by purchasing YOUR Personally Numbered Station during it’s introduction this inaugural weekend, March 3-5, 2017!
