2014 - LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad Layout in Florida

The LCCA is seeking members in the Florida area who have an interest in participating in a LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad Activity.  We are looking for members who want to build sections and bring them to a Special Event Train Show scheduled for March 2014.   If you have an interest, please contact Bob Eberley for more details.  You can build a module from scratch on your own, you can purchase a modular kit from the LCCA or Lionel, or you can have a company such as TW TrainWorx design and build a customer modular section for you.  If you do not have the room to have your own layout, this modular activity is a great way for you to run your Lionel Legacy trains with fellow member and friends. Get your friends together and build them as a group project.  If you have a company, school, scout group etc you can custom decorate your modules as a personal expression of your interests.  Have fun with this project and help introduce the magic of Lionel trains to an entire new generation of people.

We hope you can participate in this fun group activity.  Members from all over the country are starting to build their own LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad layouts.  Groups in California, Dallas TX, Concord NC, York PA, Little Rock AR, Norfolk VA, etc. are all starting on building their own layouts for their regional events.  We are planning to host future regional and national events with this LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad system.  Bring your modules to Chattanooga TN this summer for our 43rd Annual Convention.  I guarantee you will have a great time!

We hope you consider participating in this fun and exciting activity.  We believe this will help introduce Lionel trains and our hobby to an entire new generation of future train enthusiasts.   After all, why do you have an interest in Lionel toy trains today?  For me, I know the reason I love Lionel Trains today is because I liked and played with my Lionel Trains as a child.  So plant the seed and spread the word.

If you have  any questions, or are interested in coordinating a 'LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad in your area, please contact me at 248-709-4137 or
