Spread the word, invite your family and friends. Come and meet with Tim and learn firsthand more about the new LCCA Switching Tracks Program.Tim is managing this new project where the LCCA will be sending special club cars to members all around the country and around the world. The LCCA will send a car to members so they can run it on their layout for two weeks, and then send it back so another member can do the same. We encourage each of you to take photos and videos of these cars on your layout. Our goal is to have these LCCA Special Cars run in all 50 states during 2015. LCCA Member Nick Hannaford even plans to run one of these cars on his layout in England. The LCCA Switching Track program is going global. To contact Tim Fuhrmann, just e-mail him at fuhrmanntim@hotmail.com

We hope you all can start off the 2015 New Year by attending a LCCA Special Event in your area. This will be a great way to help celebrate the club’s 45Th Anniversary Year. If there is not a LCCA Special Event in your area, please contact me to discuss your ideas.

We wish you a safe, healthy, successful and Happy New Year!
