151st Anniversary of the Great Train Chase of 1862

March 15, 2013 at 6:26 PM

The Lionel Collectors Club of America (LCCA) is planning to host a Special Event commemorating the 151st Anniversary of The Great Train Chase of 1862 in Paterson NJ on Saturday April 13. We will host an all day event with several activities planned at the Paterson Museum throughout the day and activities in the afternoon at the NJ Hi-Railers club in Paterson (home of a 185’ long toy train operating layout), followed by a private buffet dinner in the evening.

The Paterson Museum is the site of the Rogers Works Factory for the Rogers, Ketchum & Grosvenor Company where the original General steam locomotives of The Great Train Chase were built. We believe this event which features an entire day of Lionel Trains, Real Train history, Civil War Re-enactment activities and music will be enjoyed by members of the entire family. We believe this event will be informative, educational, entertaining and most of all fun for the kids.
