Having way too much fun on this Train Ride!

Wow!  What a whirlwind adventure trains have been this year!  Denver & the LCCA convention once again proved that the Best Train Club on the Planet sure knows how to put on a convention!  From the excursion run up to Cheyenne pulled by not only  #844, but the Centennial diesel as well, to the biggest crowd of parents & kids ever viewing our excellent Lionel Display Layout, it was non stop fun from sunup to sundown!  And to top it off, my 93 year young Mom & Dorcie came along from Dallas to see what all the hoopla was about as well!  What a treat!

And the excitement didn’t stop when we returned to Dallas either, as all of our Train projects and more have been rolling out the door like a High Balling Fast Freight with a Green Eye taking the High Rail !  The Grand Central Terminals shipped out on schedule and are now in the hands of the Lionel distributor.  The artists and crafts folks of the entire T W Design / TrainWorx team put their hearts into this project like never before and the results are nothing short of spectacular!  Lionel will have one of these beauties on display in their booth at York, Pennsylvania,  October 14 – 16th, at the TCA Eastern  Division Train  Meet.

Our very Cool North Pole Express themed layout enhancement was delivered last week to our client in Illinois and has been declared AWESOME by all who have seen it  – with a special WOW for our elf  hand car climbing to the top of North Pole Mountain.  We were humbled – and delighted – when our client declared his layout better than Museum quality!  The layout includes various scenes from the Polar Express Story, including the crossing of the reindeer  herd to the arrival of Engine #1225 through the streets of  North Pole city!

We have a baker’s dozen of Christmas layouts under construction, including the largest Holiday Train Experience  we have created to date – the all new Ronald McDonald House of Dallas – Trains at NorthPark Exhibit, opening November 20th !  This is going to be The Must See train event of the year, with more than two dozen operating trains on more than 1600 feet of track, running across the United States, in and out of the Ronald McDonald House Rail Road Station!  All aboard for Fun!

I once had a visitor to our shop ask, ” Is it legal for you all to be having this much fun at work?”  At this twenty-eight year young, family owned business with a passion for creating the Art of the Train, the answer is a resounding – YES ! ! !
