Representatives of the club will be at the LCCA booth in the Orange Hall Thursday, Friday and Saturday during the train show.  Stop by the booth and see new LCCA products such as the ALL NEW LCCA Coal Train set, the complete Texas Special Set (first time it is all together for the first time and the 100% Made in America Billboard Frame and insert sets.  Come and talk with fellow club volunteers and officers.   We hope you can meet at these LCCA Special Events and have some fun!   

On Friday October 18 - LCCA To Demonstrate New LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad System at OGR Forum Group Meeting. 

The Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA) is proud to be part of the upcoming OGR Forum meeting at the York Fairground Grandstands on Friday 10-18-13 starting at 2:00 PM.   Representatives from the LCCA will be giving a brief demonstration about the new national, LCCA/Lionel FasTrack modular railroad layout standards.   

This new Lionel FasTrack modular standard was developed jointly by Lionel, LCCA with input from other modular groups.  These new module sections are light weight, small enough to fit in the back seat of a mid-size automobile, yet can have large enough radius curved sections to run the largest and longest TMCC,Lionel Legacy line command controlled engines.  Everyone in the group can store their own module section, you won’t need make arrangements to rent a storage space or need a trailer to haul your layout to a train show.  The two piece 90 degree large radius curved sections (72” & 84”) allow for various interesting layout configurations, from basic rectangular shape to  dog-bone, hexagonal, trapezoidal and allows for reversing sections.   

This new LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad standard is simple; yet offers elegant solutions to issues experienced by modular groups today.  The tables are connected quickly by roto-locks (rotating locking mechanisms), there is no need for C-clamps.  Lionel produces a template that is available for purchase in their catalog.  This template will ensure proper alignment of the tracks, roto-locks and the drill hole patterns.  If you use the template and follow the standards, people can build sections anywhere all around the world and when they come together in the same location, the sections will fit precisely and function properly. 

We hope this new national LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad system will allow people who do not have enough space in their home to build their own layout, an option they can pursue to participate and enjoy running their Lionel trains with other people.  Building a LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad layout is a great group project and can be a lot of fun.  Local groups all around the country (FL, TX, AR, CA, PA, GA, VA) are in the planning and building stages to assemble their own modular layouts.  The LCCA is offering module sections for sale in the Club Store section of our website  If you are interested in building a group LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad layout, please contact me at 

We invite you to attend the 10-18-13 OGR Forum meeting at the York Fairground Grandstands in York PA to see and learn more about this new LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad program.   We hope to see you there!   This OGR Forum event is always a fun and informative event.

Remember, as part of the LCCA Special Events program, LCCA President Dennis DeVito has set the goal to reach out and meet with 2,300 LCCA members during the next 12 months. We encourage you to participate, bring your entire family and attend these LCCA special events.
