New York | New Haven | Hartford RR…

22 Jun

This TW TrainWorx custom layout is the most extensive “electrical” layout the TW TrainWorx Traingineers have ever designed!

Our Traintastic Customer is a retired CSX executive and he was very specific in his desire for his layout to depict New Haven area and include track plan with; switches, signals, and initially wanted Cantenary RR! Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash and East Coast Director, Mike Reagan combined their talents and provided an elaborate design (however… with no Cantenary wires, that would have been a nightmare with first de-railing or need to reach in to the Yard…)

Traintastic Layout Stats:

*87 Signals
*40 Switches
*50 Detection Rails
*25 Un-Couplers
*25 Power Blocks
* 3 Power Districts that each have 20 amps power
* Layout will run; Conventional, TMCC Legacy, and DCS
* Still waiting to hear from Traingineer George on how many feet of WIRE

Reagan has been in town assisting with the installation which will be finishing up today, June 22, 2018. While I had him here, I got him to do a little show and tell underneath the layout 🙂

Now some photos from this week’s installation but first up – a photo of Roger’s layout design. Enjoy!

    How come so much power? It seems 20 amps you could almost weld wheels to the track if something derails. I know there’s a lot of track but SIXTY AMPS to the layout? I know that he’ll run a lot of passenger cars to the station, but….. Anyway, inquiring minds want to know. Thanks

    Beautiful!! I still would of insisted on some catenary poles “with no wires” to give it that real New Haven RR Vibe.
