Choo Choo Bob Carter and his volunteer team have been working hard to provide enjoyable activities and tours for the entire family to enjoy.  We will have Real Train Excursions, Lionel Trains,  Boat Dinner Cruise, and Civil War historical activities scheduled throughout the week.  Come and meet with Representatives from Lionel.  We are certain you will have a fun, Lionel Train filled week.  Stay tuned for additional details and planned surprises as we get closer to the convention.
