2017 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 pair of cars were created to celebrate our 47th annual convention with a visit to the northwest - Tacoma, Washington. They are "Made in the USA"  from the LionScale™ line offered by Lionel. The Great Northern PS-1 mechanical reefer and Northern Pacific boxcar celebrate the rail heritage of the northwest. The cars features a first for the LCCA or any club offering with six different road numbers offered for each car. According to tradition, the convention cars 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.

These O-gauge cars are made exclusively by Lionel, LLC for the LCCA.
