The North Georgia Tinplate Trackers modular O-Gauge club is celebrating 10 years of participation in Atlanta's Festival of Trees, which benefits Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. To commemorate the event, NGTT asked Lionel to make 150 boxcars (146 were delivered) decorated with the club and festival logos.

The boxcar, No. 6-52422, was sold to members of the club. Proceeds from the sale support the club's ongoing activities displaying their interactive layout at charity and community events.

Members donated 35 of their boxcars to the Festival of Trees. These boxcars were sold to the public at the Festival with all proceeds going to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. The Festival ran from December 3 to 10, 2006 at the Georgia World Congress Center in downtown Atlanta.
