“This year, the LCCA National Convention will be dubbed the 50+1 Convention to give members a chance to celebrate last year’s cancelled 50th anniversary and commemorate our 51st year. We will be offering to ‘share the fun’ of the convention with members of all ages.  One of the many highlights will be a unique modular O gauge trains layout from LCCA FastTrack® Modular Railroad club members from across the country” said LCCA President and CEO Harry Hampson. The modular layout will be available for public viewing Wednesday, July 17, at 9 a.m. through Saturday, July 20, at 3 p.m.  Member attendees will be able to bring their own modules to add to this expansive layout.
