The most wonderful time of the year!

Roger and I are truly blessed to celebrate T W Design/TrainWorx 36th Corporate Anniversary this past Saturday, December 1st – what a way to start off the month aka…. the most wonderful time of the year 🙂

2018 has been extraordinary for TW TrainWorx, collaborating with some of the most amazing folks… our Totally Terrific Traintastic Customers! One of my all time favorite things is hearing from customers and how their experience with TW TrainWorx and the Traingineers has wonderfully impacted their lives… that’s what it’s all about and the mission set out, some 36 years ago by our founder, and kid at heart, Roger Farkash.

This past Monday, a local CBS Affiliate aired the below interview with Roger about his creative contribution to the Trains at NorthPark Event that the TW TrainWorx Traingineers have been involved with since 2010.

Enjoy! Trains at NorthPark

In 2016 Roger designed a 1300 plus square foot display for the Houston Museum of Natural Science… TRAINS OVER TEXAS and they shared some recent publicity about the success that display is also receiving. Here is the link to read the article: Trains Over Texas and below is a FACEBOOK LIVE Video with Glen Rosenbaum giving an up close and personal grand tour! Heads up… this was a LIVE Video and unfortunately the last minute or so there is no sound but still a wonderful treat to see!

Happy Tracks!

Trains, Aircraft Carrier… and a SUBMARINE??

The TW TrainWorx Traingineers are having a Traintastic time on one of our six custom layouts currently “Under Construction” in our Dallas, TX –  McGowan Street Studio!

Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, has really pulled out all the wheel stops on this design 🙂 This custom residential layout will be installed in the Hill Country of Texas for a couple that had some Traintastic “Wants” as well as requirements for their 285 square foot custom layout. Sometimes I never know exactly what Roger’s creative mind is going to “come up with” as was the case when Monday I saw an odd looking shape being formed and asked…what’s this? Roger replied, it’s going to be an AIRCRAFT CARRIER! Really… do you know how HUMONGOUS those are??

Fun story, Roger went online in search of a GI Joe Aircraft Carrier to find it is indeed out there, but the ones that are; in the box, mint condition, never been opened, blah/blah/blah cost a mere…. (wait for it)

$15,000.00 B notes (as Reagan would say). So, that being out of the question, Roger thought to himself…”surely I can find pieces of the carrier and in particular the bow and then add on to make a mock up that will dock nicely in the San Diego area of the layout! And he was off to the races! Check it out:

So on the other end of this layout is another harbor with a GI Joe modified Submarine!

**Traingineer Ellis (another Mike) in the picture above is about to wrap the submarine in plastic and put it back on the layout so Roger can then Sculpty-Mold some waves… of course!

Traintastic fun continues 🙂

Happy Tracks!

Intense Signal/Switch Control Panel…

The TW TrainWorx Traingineers have the pleasure of working with a gentleman retired from CSX Railway on his Custom New Haven|Cedar Hill Yards themed layout with the top priority being intensely elaborate Signal/Switch capabilities for some TRAIN RUNNING FUN TIMES!

Chief Traingineer, Roger Farkash, along with East Coast Director, Mike Reagan, Traingineers; Roy and George have designed and are in Full On Implementation Mode working on one of the most elaborate Signal/Switch Control Panels I’ve ever seen!!!

Because I have a front row seat to witness the Traintastic progress on all fronts, I admittedly find myself in a constant state of “OH MY GOSH… IT’S GOING TO DO WHAT?????? HOW IN THE WORLD IS THAT GOING TO HAPPEN ON A ‘TOY TRAIN’ LAYOUT???  FOR REAL?????

Talk about taking it to the next level and having some Crazy Trainiac Fun 🙂

Recently I asked Traingineer Roy… What are you doing?

Next up, join me on a tour of what is going on underneath this layout with Traingineer George…
