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!

What a fabulous month February has been for the TW Traingineers having the incredible opportunities to partake in the Rosenbaum, “Houston, Wharton, & Pecos River RR” layout installation and just earlier this week the dismantle of the awesome, seen by millions world wide, Lionel Holiday Layout displayed at the Transit Museum inside the Grand Central Terminal which just celebrated its 100th Anniversary of existence!!

Gives me goosebumps to think about all the travelers and stories that have transpired in the 100 years…

Jumping! Jiving! Jam Packed June & July…

Wowzers! I was reviewing projects the Traingineers have been working on since the first of June and bottom line… we be jamming!  As I write this post, our Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash is in Norfolk, VA attending the LCCA Convention with his trusted Traingineer George Watson.

While in Norfolk, they are working on a three pronged client/project schedule which includes, Lionel, LCCA and T W TrainWorx! For Lionel we are setting up their dynamic, one of kind, awesome train layout (with subway section included)  that will be on display in the hotel lobby for young and old alike to enjoy watching trains doing what they were made to do…RUN!

Then there are the “Modules” Roger has been collaborating on with both the LCCA and Lionel folks for what I believe is going to be a smashing success after the debut at the convention. These modules will also be added to our TrainWorx product line as soon as all is fleshed out. So…for all you fans of “modular” systems…the fun is just now getting cranked up!

Four of the module pieces were fabricated for Lionel to display Lionel product, my personal favorite is the Christmas module and second it’s gotta be the train derailment/clean up crew! The module pieces will come in various sizes such as “straight”, “full curved” and “narrow curved”. The LCCA pieces that will be shown at the Convention will be in their “natural wood” state with track on top, sure to stir up the imagination! It’s going to be funner than fun watching this “Modular” project come to reality and into its full product form offering from, Lionel, LCCA & TrainWorx! Now that’s something to toot your horn for!

Roger and George will also be manning the TrainWorx table at the convention…only thing missing is me 😦 Still haven’t figured out how to be in two places at once. No “app” for that….yet.

Last month Roger took our first HO station, the Santa Fe Temple Station, to an event held in Temple, Texas and it was very well received!

Then there is the “over the coffee table” Thomas the Tank layout we’re building for a customer’s grandchildren (which of course makes them terrific grandparents for sure!) I’ll take another photo upon completion as this picture is of the base with no Thomas accessories on top. Pretty cool how it connects like a puzzle piece…oh that Chief Traingineer has it going on… 🙂

Roger and I headed down to Houston last week to see progress on a another client’s train room being built over the garage. This project has been in the works for over a year now and is scheduled for installation in 2013 – it is going to be nothing less than magnificent upon completion! Roger has not only been working with the client but also the architects, construction manager, and electrician as they build this room to house a train layout that has been in the “dream” state for years. Truly nothing better than to be part of making a dream a reality…well not just any dream of course, I’m talking those “what my dream train layout would be…” kinda dream… Making “someday” a reality in the spring of 2013!

The Houston architect and his family paid us a visit last week and we just had a fabulous time showing off our new location as well as progress on the table. Timing was perfect as it was just before four different projects were loaded on a 53′ truck so there was a lot to see on the shop floor.

Train related and on our T W Design side of business, we have a video set begin fabricated for BNSF which will be installed in their Ft. Worth corporate headquarters next month. It’s been a real treat having another project to work on after debuting the BNSF Train Layout at the Berkshire Hathaway Shareholders meeting in Omaha. And speaking of the BNSF Layout, there is a teaser in the current Classic Toy Trains Magazine about the upcoming EXCLUSIVE article covering the BNSF layout. Be on lookout for the September CTT Magazine.

And you thought I was just joking about experiencing an absolutely, “Jumping! Jiving! Jam Packed June & July” —-> but wait…there’s more!

We will be working on a Reproduction of Lionel No. 177 Scenic Railway layout for a gentleman in the great state of Pennsylvania. That table will be delivered after the October York Meet and seeing how it will be with us – Roger is going to reconfigure our space and incorporate this layout for you all to see at the Fall York Meet. This again, is another train table that is the realization of a “dream layout” coming true.

Oh, I almost forgot the latest addition to our TrainWorx Bridge Kits – the Camelback Bridge! Currently it is in a local Hobby Shop on consignment and creating a ton of excitement. Want one? Well it wont be online for a couple more weeks but you know I’ll make you a *Steal-of-a-deal on a Camelback Bridge Kit so call NOW – – – > 214-634-2965 or email me at traindame@traindame.com and we’ll Make It Happen!

I bet your eyeballs are getting tired about now, so I’ll wind this blog entry down but I can assure you, I’ve only scratched the surface of everything going on here at T W TrainWorx – exciting times for sure!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and know that I am eager to answer any questions you may have or even better, the TrainWorx Traingineers can make YOUR train layout dream come true – Any Layout…Any Size…Any Where! We are only one phone call away – – – > 214-634-2965 < – – –

Happy Tracks!
