February 2018 marks our first year Anniversary having Mike Reagan on board serving as the TW TrainWorx East Coast Director and what an absolutely phenomenal year of growth it’s been! All the Traingineers are super stoked to continue focusing on; new product development, custom layout design/fabrication/installation and already Mike’s Layout Assessment bookings for 2018 are filling up!
Last summer, Jim and his wife were in Dallas for a convention and dropped by our Dallas Studio to check us out and after the visit was winding down, I recommended to Jim having Mike Reagan come to his layout, make an assessment and well… read for yourself from this email Mike received January 25, 2018:
What in the world is a Layout Assessment and more importantly, how can YOU get one for YOUR layout? Find out ALL about it right here: TW TrainWorx Layout Assessment
The TW TrainWorx Traingineers have been having a BLAST bringing to life three custom layouts we’ve completed for three of our Traintastic Top TW TrainWorx existing customers! That’s right, each of these gentlemen enhanced their existing TW TrainWorx custom layout or in the case of Skip, he ordered up an entirely new Polar Express Train Layout that will be enjoyed by many during this year’s Holiday Season. Can I get a HO HO HO!!!
First install was completed last week in Florida where the industrial yard portion of Steve’s layout was enhanced with some very meaningful custom buildings, a way cool Service Yard and a boat where some very happy swimming Dolphins can be seen enjoying the water.

Next stop is NEW JERSEY… then on to NEW YORK!
I will update on the TW TrainWorx Layout Trifecta as photos come in from location 🙂
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 : )
Spring may be winding down but Traindame and the Traingineer’s traveling schedule is just getting warmed up!
This past weekend I joined Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, to check in, talk trains and break bread with three of our dear custom layout clients…
First stop – Huntsville, Texas where we found Don MacCormack focused on enhancements to his layout in preparation for a Layout Tour Bus full of ‘Train Nuts’ from the Houston TCA National Conventional who will have the pleasure to experience Don’s custom layout, Wednesday June 22nd. Roger assisted with some scenic landscaping and poured water to a creek underneath the Erie bridge – I had some fun and video taped the lesson : ) Please feel free to watch instructional video on pouring in water here: Making water
Enjoy some photos from our first stop at Don’s:
Next stop was little further down the road to Shenandoah, Texas where Roger added some trees and landscaping for the final touches to Steve Tripp’s custom layout. I love what his wife had to say about Steve since the arrival of his layout last month; “He can’t stand to stay away from his train room, I know where I can find him!”
Also on the Houston TCA National Convention Layout tour will be Glen Rosenbaum’s Houston, Wharton & Pecos River Railroad, another custom layout by TW TrainWorx. You can see his layout Thursday, June 23rd and while you are there, be sure and get a picture taken with Traingineer, George Watson, who will be running trains on the HW&PR during the tour! Enjoy some past photos taken of the HW&PR …
