Roger and I traveled to San Francisco this past weekend and assisted our good friends with the Lionel Collectors Club of America in their booth while attending the San Mateo – World’s Greatest Hobby show. We had a great time and like the old saying goes… a picture is worth a thousand words…so a bunch of pictures is worth thousands more – – – > Enjoy!
The first month of 2013 finds the Traingineers with two residential tables on the floor in various stages and at last count… we’re getting ready for six new projects to hit the floor in the first quarter of this year! What’s really cool are the states represented in those six proposals; Alaska, Ohio, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Nebraska & Georgia.
It’s almost our one year anniversary in our new location in South East Dallas and what a year it’s been! To have had BNSF be the very first layout built at 2808 McGowan Street certainly set the bar for our Traingineers and I continue to be amazed with the level of expertise they pour into each layout. The results keep getting better and better as does the fun and enjoyment from doing what we love to do.
Enjoy some pictures of the past year with both finished work and process shots…
Be sure to check out the new page I added to my blog: Working on the RailRoad where I will be posting pictures of projects in the shop on a weekly basis. Also, we are in the process of updating the TW TrainWorx website as last year we added over a half dozen new products to our TrainWorx line and all of them have yet to be included in our cyber store. That would be a bad case of me not keeping up with our talented Chief Traingineer who always has something popping out of his brain to become a product for YOU!
Here is a list of new product we added in 2012:
Temple HO Station
Wooden RailRoad Table
B57 Bridge Kit
Lionelville Dealer Display

“This is a masterpiece!” – Warren Buffet, March 5th, 2012
We’ve started our first train layout in our new digs and it’s really starting to take shape!!!! We had an excellent meeting today with the client and all systems are full speed ahead. Here’s a couple of pictures I took this afternoon. You will see the base on one side and the table top on the other. Roger even turned on the train and it made a full loop whistling all the way…
Roger Carp with Classic Toy Trains wrote a bang up article in the January 2012 Issue of Classic Toy Trains, actually – don’t take my word for it – check out the article for yourself and let me know what you like best about it! —> MAG-CTT-JAN12 <— It’s a great read and there are great pictures to go along with the article photographed by Carl Swanson.
Below are a series of shots taken on site while the Traingineer’s were installing Mr. Smith’s magnificent layout:
