The LCCA returns to Milwaukee to attend 2016 TrainFest, one of the premier train shows in the country.  Part Train show, part hobby show, part layout tour - and a general good time for the whole family!

The LCCA asks that if you attend, you stop by our booth and say hello to LCCA volunteer club Past President Dennis DeVito. If you have the time, he sure could use some help.  If you are available for a few hours to help out at our display, please contact me at 520-904-7841 or Any help will be much appreciated.  Spread the word and invite your friends.  We welcome all LCCA members, both the existing members and the new LCCA members who joined our fine organization from the LRRC.  The LCCA display will be set up adjacent to Lionel’s display in the hall.  Please bring the entire family and have some fun!   Come and experience the Magic of Lionel Trains
