It’s all in a DAY…

Without going into all the gory details of Mr. Day’s disastrous experience with his initial train layout (NOT from TW TrainWorx) other than to say, after our initial assessment in 2015 it became apparent that Mr. Day had a decision to make;  1) because of the unfortunate inability of his existing layout to literally RUN TRAINS and an ultimatum from his wife to get the trains running otherwise your train room will be my craft room… OR, 2) take a leap of faith, bite the bullet, take a chance with TW TrainWorx and literally ‘trash’ the old layout to make room for his new custom TW TrainWorx Layout!

Decision made… Leap was taken… bite crunched… the Day Layout went on the TW TrainWorx Board for Design, Fabrication, and Installation!!

A couple of fun facts about Mr. Day’s custom TW TrainWorx Layout… it was our first layout constructed entirely by Mike Reagan in his North Carolina studio! Other than the custom lift bridge which was designed & laser cut in Dallas then shipped up to Mike and having Roger fly in to assist with carving! We are extremely proud of the results that came out of our East Coast Division!!!

Let’s let the pictures do the talking, first up: Photos from TW TrainWorx East Coast Division: Concord, NC:

Fabrication was finished in December, 2017 and Mike loaded the truck up in North Carolina and made the trip to Santa Fe, NM through Dallas, Texas. Once the truck and layout made it to Dallas, Traingineer and Road Warrior, Eugene Kollman drove the layout to Mr. Day’s home to start “Operation Day Installation” on Monday – January 8th, 2018.

First item to take care of was demolishing the old and completely dysfunctional layout… Gotta Go!

Out with the old…in with the new!


OH HAPPY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
(pun intended… lol)

Happy Tracks!

First *5* Star Review of 2018 just arrived!

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

Custom Layout Trifecta of June Installs!!

**FLORIDA**   **NEW JERSEY**   **NEW YORK**

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.

PROCESS SHOTS IN MCGOWAN STREET STUDIO:

ON LOCATION IN FLORIDA:

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 🙂

Happy Tracks!

Best gift you can give YOURSELF for Father’s Day…

Without a doubt…

No questions asked…

It would be to have a Layout Assessment done by the Best of the Best in the Industry!!

Well, WHAT IS A LAYOUT ASSESSMENT and Who does it?? Excellent question, so glad you asked! Mike Reagan, Director of TW TrainWorx East Coast Division, recently completed his third Layout Assessment in North Carolina and what better way to answer the “What is a Layout Assessment?” question than a *Real… Review… from Steven M:

May 11, 2017

Dorcie

Thank you for initiating your Layout Assessment Program. My layout was fabricated over 15 years ago and I lacked wiring diagrams and most of the wiring was improperly marked and/or terminated.

We’ve been in North Carolina for only 7 months and for the last 2 months after working on the layout I would be totally frustrated.

Mike Reagan was a Godsend in getting my layout fully operational within 1 1/2 days. I’m now able to operate my trains utilizing the Lionel Odyssey or the MTH DCS wi-fi systesms.

My wife and I were very happy having Mike as a house guest and enjoyed learning his knowledge of North Carolina customs.

I would highly recommend Mike and your company to anyone else needing help with their layout. I plan to attend the next York train show in October and look forward to meeting you in person and Mike again.
