THANK YOU!

Dorcie aka Traindame, Roger aka Chief Traingineer, and all the TW TrainWorx Traingineers want to express our sincerest gratitude to all the Festival Attendees who traveled near and far, along with our Vendors, TrainWorx Layout owners, (past, present & future) and the Mighty Lifestyle Freedom Club Volunteers headed by John & Christie Di Lemme for being part of our: Fantabulous, Ferroequinology, Fellow-shipping, Fantastically Fun Festival!!

Because of YOUR generous hearts, you made it possible again this year to make a donation to the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas and we are applying the funds to create a ONE OF KIND table that will be raffled during the Dallas – Ronald McDonald House – Trains at NorthPark Event which opens in Dallas, Texas November 22, 2014… more on that soon 🙂

Enjoy the picture gallery below from the
Third Annual Layout Festival – September 27, 2014 – Dallas, Texas USA:

Now, if I had a dollar for every time I’ve been asked, “So Traindame… What is the date going to be of next year’s FOURTH ANNUAL TW TRAINWORX FESTIVAL????”  Well, I’d be banking 🙂

I have the answer! GET A PEN THAT WRITES, MARK YOUR CALENDAR’S, RESERVE YOUR HOTEL ROOMS, ALERT YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS AND FELLOW FERROEQUINOLOGISTS…

What’s been going on in Traingineerland???

Whew!!!!! Catching my breath now and mind boggled that I didn’t post a peep on my blog in July – YIKES!!!

Below is a sentiment I’ve stated out loud at least 10 times (if not more) over the past 6 weeks…

“So wish I could be in two places at one time… or realistically… more like 5 places at once!”

I have been fortunate to be in a hopping travel mode with the Traingineers as we’ve been serving clientele from the West Coast – Thousand Oaks, California, on into the Mid West – Indianapolis, Indiana and Chilicothe, Ohio… and just when I think it can’t get any better… it does!

There are so many wonderful “Train Nuts” across this great country of ours, who are really some of the most “traintastic” (Traindame word) people we not only have the opportunity to produce layouts/product for but (*Added Bonus*) we also enjoy time making wonderful memories and experience INCREDIBLE fellowship with truly EXTRAORDINARY people!!

I was pondering the best way to get my past six weeks experience across to you and decided to put together a couple of Traindame Photo Collages:

But wait… before the collage, a shameless selfie first 🙂

October Overflow

TrainWorx Traingineers finished off an incredible October Overflow installing the custom TrainWorx layout for Railyard Hobbies, in Elverson, Pennyslvania. This is absolutely a definite MUST VISIT hobby store!

I say finish off because October in the TrainWorx studio was jam packed with great projects like:

  • Railyard Hobby layout
  • Lionel refurb  section of Corporate Layout
  • Lionel Dallas Toy Fair
  • TM Video Shoot
  • Ronald McDonald House | Trains at North Park Layout additions
  • Lionel Big Boy Pedestal

Here are some behind the scenes pictures of our October Overflow – ENJOY!
