TW TrainWorx makes the COVER… Again :)

Not just any cover but, the Christmas Run 295 | December 2017 Cover of the OGR Magazine that features Skip Natoli’s Polar Express Layout made exclusively for Skip by TW TrainWorx! Chief Traingineer, and Creative Director – Roger Farkash, had a blast working with Skip and bringing his vision of exactly what he wanted his “in the style of – Polar Express” Layout to be. Here’s picture of magazine taken in my office chair…

Roger says, “Hello, take a picture of the magazine on the Polar Express we’re working on for Pete!” So of course… I did : )

Then Roger said, “Wait, I am going to go get a Polar Express Train…”

So I was on the OGR Forum and the wonderful OGR Webmaster shared this *Traintastic article and YOU can read it right here… Enjoy!! POLAR EXPRESS ARTICLE

Now it’s time to head home and root for those ASTROS playing in the World Series!!! #HoustonStrong

Happy Tracks!

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:

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!

Traingineers on the M O V E !!

TW TrainWorx is experiencing an incredible first half of 2016 with Traingineers traveling to; New York, Texas, Nebraska, California, and Pennsylvania for train events and custom layout installations.

This past April was particularly jam packed starting off with a custom 8′ x 20′ layout installation for our dear friend Skip in Suffern, NY – check out some process shots while on the studio floor:

From New York, Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, then met up with Traindame and Traingineer, Roy McClellan, at Spring York where its always fun to see old friends, meet new friends, talk trains, and happy to say, we came back with five solid leads for custom layouts!

Back in Texas, Traingineer George Watson, lead a crew and delivered a 5′ x 10′ custom layout just outside Houston. Here are some shots of the layout right before it loaded out and then settled in it’s new home:

The very next day the Traingineers and Traindame were off to Omaha for the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting to put up the BNSF layout in the BNSF Booth. It’s always fun seeing Warren Buffett and his friends. This year Bill Gates had a special Virtual Reality Film Crew set up a shot right dab in front of the layout. Enjoy some photos from the BNSF Booth on the Convention floor, first up Bill Gates’ Virtual Reality Film Crew…

It’s not everyday you have the opportunity to make someone’s dream come true! Below you see the Mayor of Sacramento, and ex NBA player, Kevin Johnson, embracing Roger at the BNSF layout for having found just the man that can make his dream of an ‘Underground Railroad’ layout in his mother’s ‘Underground Bookstore’ come true… more on that as it develops : ) All and all – another fabulously, traintastic time was experienced at the 2016 Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting!
