Building our new home

 

Trainz is a lot bigger than most people think. It wasn't always that way, of course. Once upon a time we lived in a single small warehouse. But, like the Little Engine That Could, Trainz kept going. 

In the video above you'll find that the Trainz business is scattered through four separate warehouses, and they're all busting at the seams. We've run out of places to put things!

The solution? We're going to be moving into a new building made just for us.

For those of you who have attended the TCA show at York, this new warehouse will be the same size as the Orange Hall. For those who aren't familiar with that building, we're talking 73,000 square feet of space for model trains. A football field, by way of comparison, is 57,600 square feet. That's a lot of trains

To build something so large requires moving a lot of dirt. That means heavy construction equipment, and let me tell you it's fun to watch them work.
