The Great American Train Race for Charity!

Sponsor Your Racing Team Today At Any Donation Amount!

Watch The LIVE 25 foot Train Race on November 13th from 8am-10am on Facebook and YouTube!



As the holiday season approaches, gratitude and giving are top of mind for us at Trainland. TrainWorld & TrainLand have partnered with FCA, Family & Children’s Association, for a fundraising event! On Saturday, November 13th from 8am-10am, TrainLand will be opening its doors to children and families supported by FCA for The Great American Train Race for Charity, a fun day complete with a 25-foot train race! This event will benefit FCA’s Lynn Vanderhall Nursery Co-Op which provides childcare and rich educational and creative curriculum for preschool children residing in low-income communities.



We've enlisted your favorite model train manufacturers, including Bachmann, Atlas, Lionel, PIKO, LGB, Rapido Trains, Walthers and Athearn, to support this cause and donate trains for the race! Each manufacturer sponsor will be teamed up with a child supported by FCA and that child will be running their manufacturer’s train in the race.



Show your support and donate to your team of choice at https://p2p.onecause.com/trainrace. And be sure to live stream the event on November 13th at 8am on TrainWorld’s Facebook and YouTube pages. This will be an incredible event that you don’t want to miss!!



All proceeds donated to FCA's Family Support programs will benefit Long Island families in need. Thank you for your support!

It would be great to see our Forum members contribute to this event by donating to (especially) Lionel and Atlas--both of whom are active supporters of this forum and the magazine. And, of course, Trainworld itself has been an devoted advertiser with us for as long as I can remember.

Christmas, trains, and kids . . . what a great way to start the holiday season by opening your hearts and wallets for a great cause.
