WOW!.

TW TrainWorx plans to have their new LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad layout in operation.  This will give our members who were not able to attend LCCA's 43rd Annual convention this past summer in Chattanooga TN an opportunity to see this new modular standard in operation.  In Chattanooga, TW TrainWorx introduced their new drop down section.  TW TrainWorx's new Lionel/LCCA FasTrack Modular Railroad layout features more details, switches, sidings and demonstrates more scenic displays, custom designed buildings and TW TrainWorx kit buildings, bridges etc.     We believe this new standard will introduce the magic of Lionel trains to an entire new generation of train enthusiasts.  TW TrainWorx may even have some LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Railroad module kits available to order.
