stated on our flier and is a Saturday.

Please mark this date the 19th Sept.

        All Aboard !!!

                

                                     

        

In 1996 a small group of railroad enthusiasts recognized the need for a club in the Chambersburg area, thus in April of that year the Cumberland Valley Model Railroad Club was founded. The club derived its name from the Cumberland Valley Railroad. The Cumberland Valley Railroad's headquarters, which was located in Chambersburg served the Cumberland Valley from 1836 until its demise in 1919.  For more history on the CVRR, click here: http://d_cathell.tripod.com/cvrrmain.html
