We Need Your Help!

We will need help in setting up, operating the LCCA booth during these weekend train shows and then for the teardown.  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 contact Dennis DeVito 574-870-0391, or Al Kolis 248-709-4137  For more information about our modular layout and kits, go to the "FasTrack Modular" section of our website

We will travel all around this great country during the next few months. You'll find us at a booth adjacent to the Lionel train layout and display.  As we like to say, "Lionel is the COMPANY that makes the trains, and we are the CLUB that plays with the trains."  See the Lionel layout 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!
