Blog Update - Al Kolis April 29

The Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA) is hosting their 42nd Annual convention this summer at the Marriott Waterside Hotel located in Norfolk VA from 7-23-12 through 7-28-12.  LCCA Convention Managers "Captain Bob" Carter, Lou Caponi and Jerry Calkins and the entire convention team have been working very hard to make this convention even better and more fun.  In addition to Tour #1 "Norfolk Southern Train Excursion", we have made arrangements for a new tour designated Tour #14 "Amtrak Excursion to Richmond VA". Seating is limited, so register today.

Family members of all ages will enjoy Tour #5. "Trains and Tapas at the Children's Museum".  Members will have an opportunity to see the vast and impressive "Lancaster Antique Train Collection" as well as the expansive O-Gauge model railroad operating layout in the museum.  This tour also includes a southern style barbecue dinner.  This will be a great and fun evening!

If you have never been to a LCCA convention, we invite you to attend your first one in Norfolk this summer.  To catch a glimpse of what our conventions are all about, click on the video link below and watch a video taken during our 40th Annual Convention in Denver CO during the summer of 2010.  Members can be seen having fun on a special LCCA/UP Steam Train  Excursion ride from Denver CO to Cheyenne WY.  Watch Make-A-Wish Foundation recipient Joshua acting as the honorary Conductor of the day.

If you are not a member of the LCCA, is still not too late to join and sign up for our 42 Annual Convention in Norfolk, VA.  Go to the Join the Club icon on our website Make your family summer vacation plans now.  We will love to see you there.  We guarantee you and your family will have fun!
