LCCA Raffles Off Dome Car Seats for its Convention Train Ride

LCCA Raffles Off Dome Car Seats for its Convention Train Ride. The Tennessee Central Dome Car has 20 seats available on the LCCA's Sunday July 24th train ride. These seats are being offered in pairs as prizes in a raffle drawing, offering each member the opportunity to ride in the dome car. There aren't many dome cars left, let alone rideable. There will not be many more opportunities to ride in such a style in the days and years ahead!

To win a pair of seats in the car, enter the LCCA Dome Car Raffle. Each winning ticket will be good for a ONE-WAY ride for two adjacent seats in the Tennessee Central Dome car - the 9400. There will be 10 winners of tickets good for the outbound leg of the trip (now over 50 miles!) and 10 tickets for the return trip. Each ticket will include 2 adjacent assigned seats in the dome car. Tickets will be for assigned as drawn, the first two winning tickets will be for the first row, the next two for the second row, etc. The tickets are available to anyone who has purchased tickets for the Tennessee Central train ride on Sunday July 24. At this time The Tennessee Central Museum has indicated the 9400 is ready and scheduled for our use. Members can decide how best to use these tickets.

Views in the Dome Car and from the Dome Car windows!   

Tickets can be purchased only through the business office (815-223-0115) effective now until approximately July 19 when the business office moves down to Nashville and again in person in Nashville until the drawing on Saturday, July 23 at approximately 5:00.
