New toy train products from the October 2016 issue of Classic Toy Trains

LCCA boxcar, items from Railroad in a Box, structure from Pikesville Models, and more
CHRISTMAS CHEER – LCCA STYLE: The Lionel Collectors Club of America shares the holiday spirit with the new “Share the Joy” 2016 Christmas boxcar made by Lionel. The 10½-inch boxcar has die-cast metal trucks and operating couples, a metal frame, and jovial Santa and snowman Christmas graphics. Orders must be received by November 30, 2016, to assure delivery by December 25, 2016. The O gauge car costs $74 plus $10 shipping with a one-car-per-member limit. You must be an LCCA member to order one, and you can purchase it at or by calling the association’s business office at 815-223-0115.
REACH FOR THE SKY: Pikesville Models announces the Rocker Building, an S scale kit that allows you to create a structure as tall – or short – as you’d like. Designed by East Coast Enterprises, the base kit has the first and second floors as well as two add-on floors and roof material. Add-on kits are available that contain two floors per kit. The precision laser-cut structure includes walls, floors, roofing, and windows. You can assemble it with wood glue, paint it, and even install interior lighting. The no. ST-001A Rocker kit costs $65.

YOU WANT PIZZA OR LASAGNA?: Spice up downtown with an Italian bistro. The Woodland Scenics no. BR5855 Emilio’s Italian Restaurant is in stores now. The O gauge structure features unique exterior detailing, a curbside dining area, and a decorated and illuminated interior. Emilio’s Italian Restaurant comes ready for use with the Just Plug lighting system. See your hobby retailer or go to for more information.
Rookies START HERE: Railroad in a Box introduces the QuickieLine layout building kit for O-27 trains. The outfit contains precut, clearly identified pieces of foam board to build a 5-foot 4-inch by 3-foot 4-inch (expands to 8 feet) layout to which the modeler adds track, trains, buildings, and scenery. The QuickieLine kits make layout building easier and faster, and are designed to get kids and novices started in the hobby. The pieces, which you assemble with white glue, form a layout capable of two-train operation. The railroad features a crossover, four bridges, a viaduct, and two mountains with tunnels and a waterfall. Internal ribs and profiles add strength and shape to the benchwork.  The horizontal pieces are printed in color and outline a town with streets, sidewalks, and a park as well as a river with a dock. Track locations are also noted, as are track radii, grades, and change in levels. Trains and track are not included. The QuickieLine kits are made in the U.S.A. and sell for $349 plus shipping. Kits come with an easy-to-read illustrated handbook. For more information or to order, go to
