8-25-12 LCCA Open House Special Event in North Tonawanda NY (Buffalo NY)

On Saturday, August 25, 2012 from 12:00-5:00 PM, the LCCA is going back to the Buffalo NY area for an open house barbecue special event and home layout tour at Frank Battaglia's (RM 15408) residence located in North Tonawanda, NY 14120.  The LCCA had a very successful and popular convention in Buffalo NY in 2008.  So we are proud to be back in the area for a day of fun and running Lionel Trains.  LCCA members and their families are invited to attend this fun summer event.  Bring your trains and run them on Frank's impressive O-Gauge  layout.  A barbecue lunch and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided for a back yard barbecue.  The admission fee will be a modest $12/person to attend.   We will have an outdoor tent set up, so we will have this great event rain, snow or sunshine.  To reserve your spot, please RSVP to Frank Battaglia at 716 692-5282 or Al Kolis at 248 709-4137 or  We hope to see you back in Buffalo!

Frank's layout is in great condition.  Just this past week, Classic Toy Train Magazine was there photographing his layout for publication in a future issue.  People attending this event will have an opportunity to see an impressive layout in tip top condition.  We hope to see you there!
