        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

     Scotland Toy Train and Doll show.

     If you are helping at the shows, please try

     and remember when the show is over on

     the sunday its not time to leave.

     Some of the vendors need help too.

     The club tables all have to be packed away,

     The shelves all torn down and packed up.

     Then both rooms need to be put back the

     way they were for Bingo.

     Trash all has to be done, floors mopped etc.

     This takes good strong guys to do this.

     There are certain members who can not

     physically do this due to Dr's.orders.

     If no one stays to tear down then there will

     be NO MORE shows.

     We understand if you have to work etc.

     Either help setting up on saturday or help on

     sunday to reset back as it was.
