Next Stop – Denver!

San Antonito, CO

From my previous postings, you are already aware of my penchant for all things train related, and railfanning, train travel and train chasing are all part of the big picture of the journey for me.  As the crew behind the Lionel traveling displays, I will have the pleasure this month of combining a lot of what we do at TrainWorx every day with what I love to do as often as I can – traveling to Denver, Colorado for the Lionel Collectors Club of America’s 2010 Convention.

I would like to again thank the LCCA members for my recent election to join the Board of Directors of this great organization.  Officers and board members will be attending business meetings prior to the start of the Convention, and I am looking forward to contributing to the future of the LCCA with my interest and support of all of the activities that focus on promoting new membership – especially young people  – to become involved with the Greatest Toy Train Club on the Planet!

The itinerary for the week is a busy one – from a train ride on UP’s 3985 Challenger (or if not available, the 844 Northern), to the setting up of the Lionel 20′ X 60′ display in the Marriott Tech center Atrium, to the swap meet where TrainWorx will have an assortment of bridges for sale, or the always excellent banquet, it should be an exciting week of trains, train friends, toy trains and train aficionados!  I am certainly looking forward to it!

The Lionel Display in the Atrium of the hotel will be open to the public Wednesday through Saturday and the swap meet will be open to the public on Saturday.  Check the Lionel Collectors Club of America website for the complete schedule.

In the meantime, I’ll be working on all of the exciting projects we have going on in the shop right now – the production of the Grand Central Terminal structures for Lionel  (Third Quarter Delivery!) a Polar Express Holiday layout enhancement for a client near Chicago, and the biggest Holiday Train Display in Dallas to be revealed this year – more information will be announced soon!  Throw in a generous mix of our exhibit industry clients, the posting of the latest Chick-fil-A  3-D Billboards, and you have one very busy Summer for this Creative Director/Traingineer!

Looking forward to seeing you in Denver or wherever else this Summer’s journey has our paths crossing!
