TRAIN TALK invites LCCA members' thoughts on toy trains, especially those manufactured under the century-old name of LIONEL®.  This is a great place to share ideas, thoughts, memories, and suggestions with your fellow club members.

 NOTE:  TRAIN TALK works best for sharing thoughts, observations and memories with your fellow club members. Uness you specifically identify yourself to the world through your comments, you are anonymous so we cannot respond to you directly.  If you have specific questions for which you need fast answers, you may find that an email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
