Lionel’s New Train Layout Was a “Star of the Show” at the Convention

If you weren’t able to attend the recent Convention of the Lionel Collectors Club of America, you missed a great opportunity to enjoy this new and impressive train layout. Designed and built by TW Design® in Dallas, TX, for Lionel®, this layout made its west coast debut at our event and attracted lots of attention from our members and the local media—TV stations, the NPR radio station, and websites.

Members were able to operate the trains using Lionel’s hand-held TMCC/Legacy™ command control system. Big kids (Regular Members) and little kids (Junior Members) alike “oohed and ahhed” over this layout while we played with the trains during most of the week-long event.

A big “THANK YOU!” goes to Lionel and TW Design for creating and bringing this phenomenal layout to our Convention. We appreciated their allowing our members to share in the magic of operating Lionel trains and accessories. It truly was a magical experience! This activity was an example of one of the many benefits our members receive while attending the best toy train club Convention on the planet.
