Locomotive Service Yard Addition

Roger and I had the pleasure of traveling up to see our favorite Amarillo customer, Tom Campbell, to install a very cool enhancement to his TrainWorx custom layout, the High Plains Division of the Panhandle and Santa Fe Railway.

Roger started collaborating with Tom in 2012 to realize his desire of having a train layout that would reflect features of the High Plains and Santa Fe style engineering. Tom has a wonderful 30 plus year history of actually working on the Santa Fe RR as an Engineer/Manager and he wanted his layout to reflect just that.

Our two day enhancement installation focused on this area that Tom had cleared out for his Locomotive Service Yard… aka – BEFORE SHOTS:





I thoroughly enjoyed my time with both Roger and Tom experiencing two days of listening to Tom’s great railroad stories and there really is nothing better than watching Roger in action and witnessing how he ties everything together as if the Service Yard had always been on Tom’s layout.
Please enjoy the AFTER SHOTS:

Hat-Trick for TW TrainWorx!!

What’s the best way to start the New Year?? Attending not 1… not 2… but 3 live train events all in the great Lone Star State of Texas and that is exactly what the Traingineers did starting with the Katy, Texas TCA Lone Star Division Meet, then to the Houston, Texas for the World’s Greatest Hobby Show and back to Plano, Texas for the North Texas Counsel of Railroad Club’s 29th Annual Train Meet!!

Best part?? Being with fellow Train Nuts to start the year off perfectly!

January 2014

Plano Set Up:

With a start like this in January, the remaining 11 months of 2014 are just going to keep getting better, funner, and more exciting!! Love the ride!! 🙂
