March 28/29, 2015 - LCCA Has a Successful WGHOT Show in Edison NJ (Recap)

The LCCA had another successful weekend at the March 28-29, 2015 WGHOT show in Edison NJ. Thousands of visitors and over 100 LCCA members and family members visited the LCCA booth featuring our Lionel Mini layout. LCCA volunteer Director Sal Gambino and volunteer Dave Miller represented the club during this two day show giving out LCCA un-cut commemorative bill board inserts to each LCCA member who stopped by and signed in. The LCCA display was adjacent to Lionel’s display and interactive, hands on layouts featuring their new LionChief controlled starter sets. The LCCA and Lionel team did a great job introducing Lionel trains to thousands of visitors who are new to the hobby as well as re-introducing people who had Lionel trains as children, many years ago.

LCCA’s Switching Tracks Traveling boxcar made a special guest appearance on the LCCA Mini Layout which was designed and built by TW. TrainWorx of Dallas TX. Lionel President Howard Hitchcock and his team consisting of  Lauren Morris, Bill Wanders and J. Don Reese visited the LCCA booth and had their photo taken with this LCCA traveling boxcar on our mini-layout. Lionel Mascot Lenny the Lion also stopped by the LCCA booth and had some fun. It was a fun event with everyone experiencing the magic of Lionel Trains.

Thanks go out to all of the LCCA members and guests who stopped by our display. Thank you and welcome to all of the new members who joined the club during this two day event. I invite all of you to get involved and participate in our Special Events program and possibly attend our 45th Annual Convention to be held July 20-25, 2015 at the Double Tree Hotel in Danvers MA. The more you participate, the more fun you will experience. Our club is made up of great people who like to have fun with Lionel trains. So, Let’s have some fun together with Lionel trains!
