Forty Years… 1979 – 2019

That’s right Trainiac Friends, August 30th, 2019 marked four decades that TrainDame and Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, have been married!!

Wowzers right? What do you do to celebrate such a momentous occasion?? Easy Peezy, decide to go off the radar for a long weekend! First off, we headed back to the Loretto Chapel in Santa Fe, New Mexico where we were blessed to say our wedding vows, then headed on up to the High Timber Family Ranch just South East of Chama, NM with our ENTIRE family and top off the weekend with a ride on the Cumbres/Toltec Steam Train!! Such an amazing time we had and we especially cherished being able to share the adventure with our four grandchildren; Deacon age five (almost), Ford age four, Wade age three, and Lilly age two. We all had too much CRAZY fun I tell ya!!! Ha… and don’t you know, there was a TRAIN SHOW in Santa Fe to boot and we ran into one of our Traintastic customers – Henry Day!! 

If you’d told me some forty years ago that Roger would start a company in 1982 (same year our son was born) the very next year give birth to our daughter, two years later I would go to work with Roger, then in 2008 we’d create a new division of TW Design… TW TrainWorx – same year create an alter persona TrainDame, have commercial Train Layouts in; Dallas, Houston, New York City, Pittsburgh, and coming soon to Charlotte and Kansas City PLUS residential Train Layouts spread coast to coast throughout the USA and CANADA – well I would’ve told you, “WHAT, ARE YOU CRAZY – NO WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!”Well, WAY 🙂 

Sharing the photo fun of our 40th Wedding Anniversary Adventure… All A Board!

Happy Tracks!

  1. Dorcie,
    How wonderful…everything… being in business together, 40 years together, and that awesome trip with those two beautiful grand-kids….life is good, bless you. Looks like a wonderful train ride too
    We have friends in Santa Fe, and it is a favorite destination. We have been out in the area as well but did not know about the train…. obviously, it is now on our bucket list for our next visit…we love trains as well.

    Happy Anniversary

  2. Congratulations on 40 years, this year would have been 40 years for me as well. You have a lovely family and I know just how great a job you and your husband do on your train layouts. I know first hand from Henry’s layout. Once again congratulations.

  3. It looks like a wonderful time was had by all, and there’s not much that’s better than fun times with family. Congratulations on the milestone wedding anniversary!

  4. What a wonderful family. Thank you for sharing your 40th anniversary with us, How great it was-a steam train trip. Who knows I may have one of your layouts some day to share with my family.
