For those of you who couldn’t attend the LCCA convention in Norfolk, Virginia this week, here’s a look at some of the new things we’ve brought along for display.
We’re excited about this new project. Working in conjunction with the LCCA, we’ve put together a set of modular standards for use with our FasTrack. Anybody who builds their module to this design will be able to bring it to future conventions to be part of large layouts as have been done in other scales.
To make things even easier, we’ve gone ahead and done a lot of the hard work for you! Kits are available containing everything you need for the module benchwork itself, including high-quality pre-cut lumber, hardware and wiring connections. What you put on top – well that’s all up to you! (Though as you’ll see we have some ideas to get you started there too!)
For those who don’t mind cutting their own wood, we’ve made a template that will help you ensure everything is in perfect alignment so there will be no surprises when you show up at the show!
We’ll cover these modules in more detail in their own blog post here very soon. These items will be available for purchase through our website at www.lionelstore.com.
Our layouts tell stories. Think of these accessory packs as pre-written chapters for those books! We’ve grouped some of our most popular accessories into collections to help get you started on your scenes. Perfect for the new modules, these will also be right at home on your regular layouts. And of course you can mix and match the packs and other accessories and scenery products to make whatever you can imagine.
Our first four packs include a “Tis the Season” winter package, a residential neighborhood, city street, and rail yard. These include buildings, lights, signs, figures, and action accessories to get you started.
Like the modules, we’ll cover the details of each of these in more detail in an upcoming blog. And the accessory theme packs will be available online at www.lionelstore.com.
The highlight of any convention is always the new trains on display. Here is a look at the projects that will be coming to your dealers’ shelves soon:
