11/23 - Jan 5 - Welcome to the Trains at NorthPark Mall - Dallas TX

Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA) members Roger and Dorcie Farkash invite you and your friends to attend a holiday season exhibit “Trains at NorthPark Mall” in Dallas, TX from November 23, 2013 to January 5, 2014.  Spread the word, club members, families and friends are invited to this month long event.  Proceeds will be donated to benefit the Dallas Ronald McDonald House in Dallas TX.  The Ronald McDonald House provides a home-away from home for those families whose child is in the hospital receiving much needed care for their serious illness.

The massive toy train layout depicting various scenes and famous landmarks from all across America was designed and built by TW TrainWorx of Dallas TX.  This year the layout is expanded and has even more operating trains!   Come and enjoy the layout with nearly 2,000 feet of track on 22 loops as well as dozens of animations through a presentation of a miniature journey across our great and beautiful country.  To see a video from a previous LCCA Special Event held at this exhibit, click on the video link below:
