What better way to start off your spring then to be with your family, friends from the Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA) and with Lionel Trains. Come to the World's Greatest Hobby On Tour (WGHOT) show and meet with club Director Sal Gambino and former LCCA Director David Miller. Spread the word and invite your friends and neighbors!

For those of you who may not have attended a WGHOT show, you don't know what your are missing. Trains, trains and more trains of all shapes and sizes are there for the enjoyment of the entire family. Bring the kids, grand kids, neighbors, friends, they will have a ball! The LCCA is committed to being at this show to help introduce the club and Lionel toy trains to a generation that may not have grown up playing with Lionel trains as children.

LCCA member Michael Broggie will be a featured guest speaker making a presentation “Walt Disney’s Railroad Story” He will be making three presentations per day. Ask Mike about Walt Disney’s Lionel train layout he had in his office. You will be interested in his story.

The LCCA team of volunteers will staff a booth adjacent to Lionel's operating layout and display. We are certain you will enjoy LCCA's Mini-operating layout which was designed and built by TW TrainWorx of Dallas TX. This layout demonstrates what can be done within a very small area. You don’t have to have a large space to enjoy your Lionel O-Gauge trains.

We may need your help during this weekend train show. This is a golden opportunity for you to get involved with the club and introduce the Magic of Lionel Trains to thousands of people in just a couple of days. If you and any of your friends are interested in helping out, please call me at 248-709-4137 or stop by the booth and inquire.

Come and see the Lionel display and speak with Lionel personal. Bring your children or a friend and introduce them to the magic of the train hobby and the camaraderie of the LCCA. We'll welcome them into the club as new members of "The Best Toy Train Club on the planet"!  We hope to see you there! We know you will have FUN!
