I was a member of the LRRC before it joined in with the LCCA, so I was not aware of the gondola with cement loads or the first boxcar. Are they dated?
The Locomotive appears to be from the 11699 Hallmark "Toy Maker Santa Express" from 2015.
The gondola is 52257 from 2001.
The first boxcar is a LCCA 19998 from 2003, not to be confused with the virtually identical "regular" 19998 from 2001 (decal to the left of door differs).
The 2014 boxcar is 58613
The 2015 boxcar is 58249
The 2016 boxcar is 58264
The 2017 boxcar is 84609
The 2018 and 2019 numbers are not self-evident.
The Caboose is 9259 from 1977.
Does anyone know (or heard) if LCCA will be doing a Christmas car for 2020?
TomH, I have been wondering this, too, since in some of the past years I would have it by now.
I did indeed see the announcement in the newsletter. At the time of my original post in this thread, the deadline to order a 2020 TCA offered Christmas Car was approaching. I took a chance by not ordering, and looks that my annual LCCA Christmas car series will continue.
There will be a Christmas car this year. We just approved the artwork and Lionel said it will be made soon.
We hope to have it advertised in the next LION ROARS and hopefully delivery by Christmas.
