LCCA Featured on Notch6 Podcast

On 10-18-13, Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA) Club President Dennis DeVito and President-Elect Al Kolis were interviewed for a live Notch 6 Podcast from York PA.  For those of you not familiar with podcasts, this is a recorded audio interview analogous to a radio broadcast that is available at any time you want to listen to it.  You just go to and click on the “York 2013 LCCA News” item and then a second click to listen to audio interview.  If you can open an e-mail, you can listen to the audio podcast. It is that simple and easy to access.  

Listen in as LCCA President Dennis DeVito provides an update on LCCA’s new commemorative products, the Texas Tommy Special and the recently announced Lou Caponi Coal Set Signature Edition train offering.  This set designed by the late honorary LCCA President Infiniti, Lou Caponi consists of a Vulcan Switcher engine, an operating hopper car and a non-operating hopper car with an battery operated end of train device (another first).  Another unique feature is these hopper cars will have operating couplers and die-cast fully-spring trucks.  Please go to the club store section on our website for the details and to order this limited edition commemorative set with custom Lou Caponi Billboard insert and frame set.  Do not procrastinate on this one, sales will be limited to the first 500 members who place their order.  We expect to be able to deliver these sets to our members who order them during the first quarter of 2014.

Al Kolis announced the newest LCCA Membership Recruitment campaign.  If a current LCCA member sponsors a new member to join the club, and the member specifies them as their sponsor on their application, both the current member and the new member will each receive a special, personalized set of billboard inserts along with the 100% “Made In America” Billboard Frame set.  We appreciate your efforts to help expand the club and introduce others to the hobby and the magic of Lionel trains.  If you know someone that has an interest in Lionel trains, you can even give them a one year gift membership.  Both members will receive a commemorative billboard frame and insert set.  With the holiday season coming up soon, this will make for a great gift.  Spread the word and sponsor a new Regular or Junior Member to Join The Best Toy Train Club on The Planet!

Al also provided an update about some of the upcoming LCCA Special Events in various cities such as Lionel’s Open House Sales Event in Concord NC on November 8-9.  The November Sales event is open to LCCA club members and their families for a private sale on Friday evening, with the event open to the general public on Saturday  Please go to  the following link on the events page of our website for additional details: see the story - click here
