Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad
Last updated on April 30, 2015

Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad's mission is to provide a heritage railroad experience within the Ohio and Erie Canal National Heritage Corridor and provide alternative transportation to and within Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Description:
CVSR is one of the oldest, longest and most scenic excursion railways in the country. It is a private sector, volunteer supported, not-for-profit organization operating in partnership with Cuyahoga Valley National Park and dedicated to the preservation of passenger rail transportation.

History:
Cuyahoga Valley Preservation and Scenic Railway Association, dba Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad was incorporated in 1972, running trains on tracks built in 1880 by the Valley Railway to transport coal, freight and passengers between Canton and Cleveland. During its first 15 years of operation, CVSR ran excursions and special event trains with permission from the B&O Railroad, followed by The Chessie System and later CSX Transportation. In 1987, The National Park Service purchased the tracks between Independence and Akron and partnered with CVSR to run excursion trains through the National Park.
