Announcing… Live with Traindame!

One of the coolest aspects of being around the incredibly creative, crazy talented, and super skilled Traingineers is being able to see first hand the massive amount of progress that can happen in a week… a day… or heck even in a couple of hours on the studio floor!

So with that in mind, and having my handy dandy iPhone and Facebook *Live* video, I’ve officially started my “Traindame… Live in 5” series and invite you to view my very first episode which features a cool look at the making of the Houston Museum of Natural Science’s Trains Over Texas displays opening November 18, 2016.

Oh… and be on the lookout for a truly behind the scenes, I’m talking – filmed WAY in the back portion of our studio sneak peek look at the 17′ Pecos River Bridge : )

Enjoy!

Happy Tracks!

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:

Ode to NYC – TrainWorx Custom Layout

Collaboration between Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, and Jim B. of New Jersey led to a modification of the TrainWorx Hellgate 5′ x 7′ table into a 6′ x 10′ Hellgate base, Subway, and elevated railway featuring a jam packed NYC footprint! The three levels of trains can be seen going through tunnels and bridges, underneath the subway, and circling Manhattan’s; Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, Grand Central Terminal, and midtown’s MetLife Building.

The Traingineers are loading this table in the truck right now for the journey this weekend to its new home in New Jersey. Before they started taking it apart for shipping I took some pictures to share with all my Trainiac friends : ) ENJOY!
