Convention Car


The LCCA 2018 Convention car
LCCA 2018 Convention Car

2018 LCCA Convention Car.


The LCCA designs and Lionel produces a limited-edition Convention Car every year. The décor of each car in this long-standing tradition is related to the locale of the Convention or based on a railroad serving that area.

It is offered for purchase to members only and to those who join the club in order to buy one.  Because the production run of this car is limited, it is relatively rare and often becomes an instant collectible.  The car becomes a souvenir of the Convention for use by members on a train layout or for display.


This car was created to celebrate our 48th annual convention with a visit to the Chicago, Illinois area. The car features metal sprung trucks, working couplers, and features high gloss metallic paint. According to tradition, the convention car contains discreet LCCA markings.

Many LCCA members collect the Convention Cars as mementos of attending LCCA Conventions and/or as niche collectibles. Some members display them on a designated shelf in their train room at home. Because this car is unique, it is also offered to the public as a benefit for joining "The Best Toy Train Club on the Planet" and an incentive to continue collecting cars in this annual series in the future.

This O-gauge car was made exclusively by Lionel, LLC for the LCCA.  

Limit two cars per member. Last day to order the 2018 convention car - November 30, 2018 or when sold out.  Cars are available for delivery by Christmas. Click here for Ordering information or by calling 815-223-0115.
