March 2 Special Co-Sponsored Event in Lexington (Recap)

The LCCA returned to the Bluegrass with a joint LCCA/TCA Train Meet held in Lexington, KY, on Saturday, March 2. More than 800 members, adults, and children in attendance had a good time. The meet was hosted by club members Winfrey Adkins, Larry Black, Bob Jacobs, and Harry Overtoom.  About 30 LCCA members commented, “It was nice to have the club back in Lexington!”

The LCCA supplied several door prizes as giveaways, which were a great addition to the success of the meet. Boy Scout Troop 859 from Lexington was present and helped vendors and guests in any way possible. The troop received $1 of each admission to help fund their activities during the year. The scouts had a great time running some trains.

Jerry Chose brought his new layout to show what can be done with Lionel trains for a great-looking layout as well as for fun. Visitors and children (of all ages) had a great time buying trains and watching trains in action on two operating layouts.
