2020…The TRAINTASTIC Twenties!

Happy New Year – Happy New Decade to all of our Trainiac friends 🙂

The Traingineers ended the decade accomplishing absolutely remarkable custom layout installations all over the country and a first…even in Canada! We are so blessed by each of our Top Traintastic Customers with Roger and I continuing to be in awe of the gifted group of employees we employ and passionately refer to as our Talented Traingineer Team!

Special shout-out of gratitude to each Traingineer Team Member: Paul Munger, Mike Reagan, Mike Ellis, Garrett Broyles, Eugene Kollman, George Watson, Dennis Magee, Judy Ellis, Jeff Matney, Nick Ellis, Ethan Tait, Abraham Alvarado, and Ulises Mendez. YIKES! I would be remiss not mentioning three honorary Traingineers; Joe Holtzinger, Stephanie Reagan, and Alex Mallaie, who’ve pitched in to assist and we’re very appreciative to have each “on Traingineer Duty Call”!

We expanded our reach and increased services we offer by adding the uber talented Mike Reagan to our team in 2017. Mike became our East Coast Director based out of Concord, NC. and from his East Coast Studio headed up fabrication/design/installation of three custom residential layouts for customers in Santa Fe, NM – Warren, NJ – Providence, RI and we’ve sent him all over the country for layout assessments, installations, service calls, and events; New York, Nevada, Texas, Kansas, Colorado, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Iowa, Florida, North Carolina and even Canada!

Going down Memory Lane a bit, Roger Farkash, founded Theatrical Warehouse Inc dba TW TrainWorx in 1982 – making this decade #4 for our small family owned business being in operation – truly a miracle in and of itself! Both of us will reach our 70’s in this decade and you’d think our founder and Creative Director would be talking the *R* word, right? Hmmm, not seeing that happen any time soon when his design calendar is just about booked for the first quarter of 2020 and his HUGE passion for what he does certainly is not subsiding!

Happy to say we’re starting out 2020 with a younger generation of Traingineers (almost half of our Traingineers are in their 20’s – early 40’s) and they are being mentored/taught by the Absolute Best of the Best in the toy train layout industry!

All this to say, we’re building a TW TrainWorx Legacy, and we’d love to have YOU become part of it! The Traintastic Traingineer Team is Still believing the Train Layout possibilities are endless : )

What a decade that was… in pictures, Enjoy!

Happy New Year Trainiac friends – wishing YOU and YOURS an extraordinarily blessed and prosperous 2020.

Happy Tracks,

Best gift you can give YOURSELF for Father’s Day…

Without a doubt…

No questions asked…

It would be to have a Layout Assessment done by the Best of the Best in the Industry!!

Well, WHAT IS A LAYOUT ASSESSMENT and Who does it?? Excellent question, so glad you asked! Mike Reagan, Director of TW TrainWorx East Coast Division, recently completed his third Layout Assessment in North Carolina and what better way to answer the “What is a Layout Assessment?” question than a *Real… Review… from Steven M:

May 11, 2017

Dorcie

Thank you for initiating your Layout Assessment Program. My layout was fabricated over 15 years ago and I lacked wiring diagrams and most of the wiring was improperly marked and/or terminated.

We’ve been in North Carolina for only 7 months and for the last 2 months after working on the layout I would be totally frustrated.

Mike Reagan was a Godsend in getting my layout fully operational within 1 1/2 days. I’m now able to operate my trains utilizing the Lionel Odyssey or the MTH DCS wi-fi systesms.

My wife and I were very happy having Mike as a house guest and enjoyed learning his knowledge of North Carolina customs.

I would highly recommend Mike and your company to anyone else needing help with their layout. I plan to attend the next York train show in October and look forward to meeting you in person and Mike again.

Traindame… Uber… Omaha !


What a *Super Fun time the Traingineers and I had last week in Omaha setting up and running trains on the BNSF Layout for the Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting!

In his usual fashion, Warren, stopped by EVERY business on the convention floor before opening to the public, hopped out of his golf cart to take pictures… selfies, chit chat, and give everyone a thumbs up of appreciation for all the effort that goes into preparing this convention for his shareholders to experience.

Personally, I had a true ‘Rock Star’ moment that I will absolutely NEVER forget… My last Uber ride to the convention started like the other two I’d been on except when my response to his question, “Are you a Shareholder?” was…

“No, I am the President of TW TrainWorx out of Dallas, Texas and we’re here setting up the BNSF Layout.”

Uber Driver Bob’s reaction was PRICELESS! (thank God we were stopped at a red light)

He said with a gasp, “YOU are TW TRAINWORX???? You, You, YOU MUST BE TRAINDAME!! Oh my goodness – you guys are just the BEST – – I LOVE WHAT YOU DO….Oh Oh man, I’ve never wished my son could be with me when I’m driving for UBER but MAN DO I WISH HE WAS WITH ME RIGHT NOW!!! I can hardly wait to tell him who I drove today.”

Knock me over with a feather… TW TrainWorx is making tracks and people from Coast to Coast are cheering us on to continue providing top notch customer service, tremendously awesome products and custom train layouts that are literally changing people’s lives and making dreams come true!! So blessed to be a part of this toy train niche of super Traintastic people like YOU… such a joy!

Now you are in “the know” of Traindame’s Rock Star moment in Omaha : )

***BREAKING NEWS… THIS JUST IN FROM BOB… MY UBER DRIVER***

Uber driver, Bob and I are members of the OGR Forum and I posted on forum the other night about my Uber Omaha experience and here is BOB’s REPLY to me… a direct cut & paste:

Good Evening,

I was honored to be able to meet TrainDame from TW Trainworx this weekend in my capacity
as an UBER driver. As you might imagine, driving UBER doesn’t involve many
insightful and engaging conversations (especially between midnight and 3AM),
but to start the morning off talking trains with someone who is truly
a key cog in the hobby was an absolute honor.
Would love to cart around some more Hi-Rail enthusiasts if I get the chance!

Here is a link to the actual posting on the OGR Forum: Traindame… Uber…Omaha


Check out some pictures from last week taken inside the CenturyLink Convention Center… folks enjoying the BNSF Layout at the Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting. ENJOY!

Track Plan Talk and Traindame on the loose!!

We have the pleasure of working on a custom layout for Dr. Davis and yesterday, George was pretty excited (as he always gets when trains are running) to show me the first loop of track he laid and wired… check it out:

Just now, I went back on the studio floor and saw the entire track laid on Dr. Davis’s layout with two trains on the tracks ready to engage… With NO Traingineer in sight, I was on the loose… check THIS OUT:

**York Video that had people stopping in their tracks…

So, what was the strategy for Traindame to attend this year’s Fall York Event solo?? I had a big video screen in the booth, table with FREE popcorn, my photo books and our new Locomotive Service Platform Kit and focused on creating new relationships and loving on the existing client relationships TW TrainWorx is so blessed to nurture.

Check out the video produced by the one and only …. amazing ABC Traingineer crew; Alan Lockwood, Ben Galbraith, and Connor Erickstad that literally had people stopping…. and watching, ENJOY!

Happy Tracks!
