CONCORD, NC (July 24, 2014) – I am excited to announce that later this year, the Lionel Railroader Club (LRRC) will merge with the Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA).
This “joining of forces” means that current LRRC members will not only maintain the benefits they have now, but also gain additional benefits that will make their club experience even better.
The LCCA is America’s premier toy train club and its leadership does a tremendous job of supporting the hobby and giving its members a quality club experience. Lionel’s close working relationship with LCCA will continue as Lionel and LCCA strive to grow the hobby by giving fans a more robust club experience.
From LCCA’s publications to its conventions and online experience, this merger will create new opportunities for LRRC members to engage with the hobby they love, and also introduce the LCCA to a whole new group of train enthusiasts.
We will be sharing more details about the merger in the coming weeks, so please stay tuned. We’re confident this move will be a win for both organizations and go a long way toward growing the hobby that we all love.
