 FAREWELL

TRAIN TALK has been a program sponsored by your club for about three years, inviting LCCA members' thoughts on toy trains, especially those manufactured under the century-old name of LIONEL®.  A selection of those thoughts have been shared via articles in The Lion Roars, and all submissions have been available on line just by clicking on any of the "See comments to date" links in the topics listed below.
 
The fact is that, after 38 TRAIN TALK sessions, we're running out of new topics to discuss.  Also, most of our members seem to be in the layout room running trains or admiring collections rather than talking about them, which is not at all a bad thing.  Consequently, TRAIN TALK #38, the new topic for December 2016, will be the final new TRAIN TALK topic.
 
Also, this month--December 2016--will be the last month in which members can submit their comments on any of the topics.  After the end of the month, which is also the end of the year, LCCA members can still come to this page to read all of the comments that have ever been submitted, but the links to "Join the discussion" will have vanished.  If you have ever intended to add some new comments to any of the discussion topics, this is the month to do so.
 
We hope that you have enjoyed TRAIN TALK, and we look forward to seeing your input on the December topic!
