LCCA Announces 2021 Christmas Photo Contest

Your Christmas Train Photo on One of Two LCCA Magazines

The LCCA Christmas photo contest is back! Again, this year there are two ways to have one of your treasured family Christmas tree train photos on the cover of an LCCA magazine. The best color photo submission will be featured on the December cover of The Lion Roars, and the best black and white photo will be reproduced on the January 2022 cover of Interchange Track. The winners will each receive a 2021 LCCA Christmas car. 

Start digging through those old family albums and slide trays for those treasured photographs of you and/or your family members and their model trains running around the family tree. And there is no longer an excuse to not participate because your best shots are in black and white.  We will be happy to receive black and white or color prints, color slides and even digital shots, as long as the subject matter includes model trains and Christmas décor. Hint: If you are taking new photos, it is always best to use vertical shots for the cover of magazines with vertical covers.  But don’t let that stop you from sending in existing horizontal photos.  

The rules are pretty simple

Mail your color prints or slides in a well-protected envelope to

Mike McLintock, The Lion Roars
2119 Winding Creek Drive
Keller, TX 76248

Or send digital photos via email to with the words “2021 Christmas Photo Contest” in the subject line. S

Send your black and white photos to

Barrie Braden, Inter Change Track Magazine
10607 Serenity Sound
Magnolia, Texas 77354

If you have digitized black and white prints, you can email them to Barry at

IF you want to get your photos and images back, you must include a the self-addressed and stamped envelope you provide.

You can enter both contests, but you can only win one. The shots can be taken at any time right up to current day. You must be an LCCA member 19 years old or older, and in good standing. Deadline for receipt of your photo for consideration is Monday, November 8, 2021.

Good luck!
