Oct 27 Special Event in Dallas on Halloween Weekend Just Got Even Better

TW Design just announced they have made arrangements to have the new BNSF Corporate toy train layout be operational during  TrainWorx's Train Layout Festival/LCCA Special Event  to be held at TW Design in Dallas Texas on Saturday, October 27, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM CST.  This 8' X 32' O-Gauge layout was unveiled during Berkshire-Hathaway's (Parent company of BNSF) Shareholder meeting in Omaha NE and featured on the cover of a recent issue of Classic Toy Train Magazine.  Warren Buffet, Berkshire-Hathaway CEO said " It's a Masterpiece" when he saw this tremendous layout for the first time.

During this event, LCCA members will also have a rare opportunity to see the Lionel Grand Central Operating toy train Layout display that is operational at NYC's Grand Central Terminal during the year-end holiday season.  Come and see both the Lionel Grand Central layout along with this new BNSF Corporate layout at this special event. This will probably never, ever happen again.  In addition to these two great layouts, the Rosenbaum Pecos River High Bridge Layout, LCCA/Lionel's FasTrack Modular Layout and TrainWorx' Hellgate Bridge layout will all be on display and fully operational.

TW TrainWorx plans to have a LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad layout in operation.  This will give our members who were not able to attend LCCA's 42nd Annual convention this past summer in Norfolk VA an opportunity to see this new modular standard in operation.  We believe this new standard will introduce the magic of Lionel trains to an entire new generation of train enthusiasts.   TW TrainWorx may even have some LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Railroad module kits available to order.

Spread the word, bring your friends and families to this FREE Lionel train filled event.  The Public is welcome. Donations will be accepted at the door to benefit the Dallas Ronald McDonald House.  The Ronald McDonald Foundation provides a home-away-from-home for those families whose child is in the hospital receiving much needed medical care their serious illness.

Come the TrainWorx Train Layout Festival and help out the Ronald McDonald House. Meet with fellow LCCA members, Roger &  Dorcie Farkash, and the Traingineers at TrainWorx who create these masterpiece layouts.  Who knows, you may even see "Cowboy" formerly "Captain" Bob Carter during this event.  Bring the entire family, we are certain all who attend will be entertained and impressed.   Contact Al Kolis at 248-709-4137 or  or Dorcie Farkash at 214-634-2965 to reserve your spot.
