Welcome To   The Cumberland Valley Model Railroad Club



        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

                  sodas. No Food or drink allowed inside.

                  Children under 18 must be accompanied

                  by an adult and under adult supervision at all  

                  times because of the volume of visitors.

                  On several occasions we have had certain

                  children throw all the switches when they visit.

                 This causes tremendous catasrophies let alone

                  it is a major job to sort out.

                  Supervise your children !!


                  Please refrain from touching the layouts! If you

                  break it - you PAY to replace it. Some things are

                  not replaceable.

                  Watch your children please. No Running!

                  NO exceptions thankyou.




                  Thankyou for your co-operation. Most if not all

                  of these displays are irreplaceable, let alone

                  the cost itself. These displays are done for you

                  to enjoy, try not to damage them.

                  We want you to thoroughly enjoy the displays.
