Cheers Trainiac Friends!

Boy oh boy, wouldn’t have believed it had I not seen it myself…and all I can say is that our Magnificent Month of March rolled right into an Amazing April…. Meteoric May… and now almost halfway through a Jamming, Jiving, Jumping June!!! What a spectacular year we are experiencing in 2019!

Ok, let me bring you up to speed on what the TW TrainWorx Traingineers have been up to the last couple of months :).

Well, to start off – we are completely BOOKED for 2019 Layout Design/Fabrication/Installation and NOW booking for first quarter 2020!!! Folks, that is a FIRST for TW TrainWorx…Absolutely Extraordinary!

We are working at full capacity in both our Dallas – McGowan Street Studio and Concord, NC Studio with both commercial and residential layouts.

East Coast Director, Mike Reagan, lead designer, on an over 400 sq. ft. O Gauge custom residential layout installing in Rhode Island end of August is currently UNDER CONSTRUCTION – – – >Β  Let’s let some pictures do the talking:

Turning my focus back to our Dallas, McGowan Street Studio, Traingineers (since March) have completed Design/Fabrication on: 3 – O Gauge residential layouts, 1 Standard Gauge residential layout, 1 Combo O Gauge/Standard Gauge Residential Layout, 1 Commercial Wooden RR layout, Denver Union Station Model, Custom Scranton Electric Building Model, Radio City Music Hall Model, One Time Square Model and traveled to Omaha for the annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder’s Meeting, where we set up the Corporate BNSF Layout! Check it out…

Two Traintastically exciting NEW commercial layouts we’re working on now, YOU will be able to see up close and personal IF you are in Charlotte, NC this Holiday Season and/or come first quarter 2020 at the new Train Themed Children’s Museum opening in Kansas City Union Station’s – Science City!!! The centerpiece of this children’s museum layout is going to be our O Scale model of the existing, Kansas City Union Station. Let me share some in process photos with you of both of these custom commercial layouts:

Oh… and another layout for a brand new customer that we started this week for his commercial real estate office lobby during the holidays! We’ve designed the table that will include his Christmas tree – right smack dab in the middle of it!

Ok… I better get this posted before it turns into October!!!! Yee Haw – having some fun now πŸ™‚

‘Tis the Season for trains, trains, trains, trains… right? Of course it is!

Don’t take my word for it, check out this December 1st, 2017 article from USA Today highlighting 13 Holiday Model Train Displays to see and you will find that the Traingineers of TW TrainWorx layouts garnered TWO mentions in the USA Today Article: USA TODAY

The two mentions are: The Trains at NorthPark display in Dallas, Texas and New York Transit Museum’s 16th Annual Holiday Train Show in Grand Central Terminal in New York City.

*Not mentioned is the over 1300 sq. ft. display we did last year for the Houston Museum of Natural Science… Trains Over TexasΒ 

*Also not mentioned is another TW TrainWorx display inside Herald Square Macy’s Santa Land exhibit … Macy’s Santaland

Another Residential Layout…delivered!

I’m telling you, it’s always a little sad to see a layout leave the shop on delivery day but once I hear from the Traingineers how much of a “WOW” factor is expressed by the owners…it’s all good!

Below is a collage of process shots taken of this 5′ x 10′ Lionel branded layout:

Hurst Process

Roger designed this table with a Pre-War style table base that included nifty (my vernacular) display shelves at each end.The table top is pine framing and drop edge topped with 1/2″ maple plywood then covered with 1″ blue foam…the silencer :). We used a combo FasTrack and Ross Track and as you can see… another hand carved, painted, scenically painted, landscaped two tunnel mountain was created.

We’ve really been putting our Laser Cutting machine to work…or I should say, Traingineer Russell is the master with the machine and cut one station and all the Dallas skyline facades which include LED lighting for this layout.

Happy Tracks!
