TW TrainWorx plans to have their new LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Modular Railroad layout in operation.  This will give our members who were not able to attend LCCA's 44rd Annual convention this past summer in Indianapolis IN an opportunity to see this new modular standard in operation.  TW TrainWorx's new Lionel/LCCA FasTrack Modular Railroad layout features more details, switches, sidings and demonstrates more scenic displays, custom designed buildings and TW TrainWorx kit buildings, bridges etc.  Come and see the Lou Caponi Memorial modular sections intended to honor the life of the late LCCA President Infinity, Lou Caponi.  We believe this new standard will introduce the magic of Lionel trains to an entire new generation of train enthusiasts.  TW TrainWorx may even have some LCCA/Lionel FasTrack Railroad module kits available to order.
