LCCA 2019 Convention Car

2019 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 49th annual convention with a visit to the Reno, Nevada area. The car features metal sprung trucks, working couplers, and features interior overhead lighting. 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. Cars are available from the LCCA until sold out.  Cars are expected for delivery in December 2019. Click here for Ordering information or by calling 815-223-0115.
