The pictures with the Switching Tracks Boxcar were made available through the support of the LCCA and the special program available to members of the Lionel Collectors Club of America.

In August of 2013, the Mundelein Fire Department brought their retired engine #1 over the Fremont Public Library for
interested kids and parents to go for a ride through some of the local streets. Larry F. brought his camera along to record
a bit of that activity. Larry graciously offered to share the pictures and they may be seen here.
In early November, club members were invited to get together for the club's annual meeting. Those who attended had a great time, good food, and good comapany.
