Today was a fantastic day at the LCCA Convention here in Concord, NC! The best tour so far was the Lionel HQ & Warehouse Tour. We started off with a great introduction from Ryan Kunkle and then moved into the engineering department with Dave Olsen! Some production samples were on the test tracks and HOLY COW we have some incredible locomotives coming our way! To start the ATSF 2900 Blue Goose paint scheme is beautiful. Additionally, we were told that the upcoming Frisco Decapod 1630 will have authentic sounds from the IRM! We then moved to the service department and got to meet the team who takes care of our trains! Aaron with the parts department shows us just how many parts Lionel has. Over 1 MILLION parts!! Then upstairs to the design department where we got to see some great upcoming paint schemes ( if you ordered the 2023 Train Of the Year Dreyfuss you are going to love it!!!!). Finally we were treated to be the Lionel CEO for about 30 secs and get our picture taken to be put on a custom convention Boxcar!!!
