CUMBERLAND VALLEY MODEL RAILROAD CLUB

Miniaturizing Past and Present

Home: Welcome

WHO WE ARE

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 to 1919, when it became part of the Pennsylvania Railroad.  For more history on the CVRR, click here: http://d_cathell.tripod.com/cvrrmain.html

CLUB MEETINGS

 Meetings are the first Thursday of each month. Starting at 7:30pm at 440 Nelson St. 

Tuesday and Thursday evenings are allocated as running/working evenings, where we work on the layouts, the rolling stock and locomotives and socialize. The Saturday morning after meeting night is HO Operations, where we use switch lists to pick up cars to make up a train, while hopefully NOT running into each other. The 2nd Thursday evening after the meeting, we drop off the cars picked up previously, using the destinations on the car card.
