Learn the history of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad

Take a slideshow excursion aboard the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (CVSR) as part of the Bay Village Historical Society’s May 18 meeting and potluck dinner.

A representative of CVSR will be at the Bay Village Community House to talk about the history of the railroad and the scenery and wildlife of the national park located between Independence and Akron. The railroad operates as a joint venture partner with the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and is a premier tourist attraction, receiving recognition from local, national and international media. The CVSR Polar Express has been reported in USA Today as one of the 10 best Christmas celebrations in the country’s national parks. The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad is a Class III railroad operating a fleet of diesel-electric and steam-powered locomotives.

The potluck and program begin with a 6 p.m. social gathering, followed by 6:30 p.m. dinner and 7 p.m. program. The event is free and open to the public. The historical society provides the main course of Tuscan chicken with bowtie pasta. Attendees are asked to bring a side dish for 10 to share, along with their own place setting. Guests with a last name beginning with A to L should bring an appetizer or dessert, while those with a last name beginning with M to Z should bring a side dish.
