LCCA’s “Switching Tracks” Traveling Boxcar is Off to a Fast Start!

Well the LCCA "Switching Tracks" Traveling Boxcar is having a great start with two very busy and exciting weekends.  This brand new LCCA Car made its debut at the LCCA and Lionel display at the Jan 10-11, 2015 WGHOT show in Hampton VA.  Lionel Team members Bill Wander (L) , Lauren Morris, J. Don Reece and Mike Phillips (R) were with the  first "LCCA Switching Track Traveling Boxcar" in Hampton VA.  This car traveled extensively that weekend and made stops at the Kids Run Train Layout, and the TOGA modular layout at the WGHOT Show.  Later in the day, this car visited and made stops on the impressive layout at the Children's Museum of Virginia in Portsmouth VA and at LCCA Member Rick Williams impressive home layout.  His grandson Jacob had a great time running this car on his Grandpa’s  layout.  

During the weekend of Jan 17-14, several other LCCA members stopped by the LCCA Display at the Raleigh NC WGHOT Show to have their photo taken with this same traveling boxcar on the LCCA mini-layout which was designed and built by TW TrainWorx of Dallas TX.  This LCCA traveling box car also  made visits to the Lionel Display, East Carolina Railroad Club’s LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular RR layout hosted by LCCA member David Bjorkman,  LCCA Member Michael Broggie’s display about Walt Disney’s Trains and  LCCA member Larry Smith had the car on the LOTS traveling layout.

Also on Jan 17, a second Switching Tracks Traveling Box car made its public debut at the Arctic Run Train show in Stevens Point WI with LCCA Volunteer Tim Fuhrmann.  LCCA members Ron and Mary Arndt and others had an opportunity to see this car and pose for some photos.   Don and Nancy Revak featured this car on their A & R short line RR layout.  

As you can see from the photos, LCCA Members are really enjoying and having a lot of fun with this new “Switching Tracks” Traveling boxcar program.   If you are  interested in participating in this new LCCA Switching Tracks Traveling  boxcar program, please contact LCCA member Tim Fuhrmann at
