    The CVMRR Story: One view by a relatively new member

    The Connecticut Valley Model Railroad Club, Inc. is a non-profit association of rail fans and modelers in the Upper Valley.  The club meets every Wednesday evening from 7PM to 9PM at our new home at the River Mill Complex, 85 Mechanic St. Lebanon, NH.  The first Wednesday of every month is a business meeting.  This is the best time for potential members and other interested members of the public to visit. 

    The award-winning N scale layout, a four piece sectional layout depicting a portion of the railroad through Crawford Notch, NH  will be setup and displayed in our new home. The semi-permanent N Scale (1:160) layout depicting the line from White River Junction to Canaan began in the White River Junction firehouse had to be dismantled and stored. The Club members' HO scale modules are being moved from storage to the new location.  We will continue setting them up for display at the Dartmouth/Lake Sunapee Model Railroad Show in April and also our annual Christmas Show at the Hanover Inn, Hanover, NH the first weekend in December. The HO scale modules do not have a single theme, although there are modules depicting Lebanon, NH and other local railroad sites.  All modules are built by club members and thus many of them reflect the specific interests of the builder. Most current modules focus on New England prototypes.  Regional  interests of the club members who model range from the Woodstock Railway to the Boston and Maine to the New England Central. In addition, some club members model the Lehigh Valley, the Pennsylvania, Conrail, CSX, the Atlantic & Yadkin Railway, and the "what if" Driscoll Rail. You can see shots of the various HO modules in the photo sections documenting the last few years' Club shows.

    In addition to modeling interests, club members are interested in railroad preservation, railfanning, and rail history. Many members of CVMRR are also members of the local chapter of the National Railway Historical Society and are helping with the restoration of the former Boston & Maine locomotive #494 in White River Junction, VT. The area rail-oriented organizations, including CVMRR and the local chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, are looking always to promote railroading's past, present, and future.
