Join CVSR in Supporting our Veterans

Peninsula, Ohio – Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad (CVSR) invites the community to our stations to support our veterans and active duty military on Friday, Nov. 10.

Each year, CVSR invites veterans, active military, first responders and up to three family members to take a train ride through Cuyahoga Valley Nation Park for free. CVSR reached out to several local veteran organizations this year and will host approximately 900 veterans and their families on the train. All train cars are full.

The CVSR volunteer association’s Veterans Day Committee has arranged for the Color Guard at each station prior to each departure.

Please join CVSR at the stations for short ceremonies honoring veterans at 8:45 a.m. at Rockside station, located at 7900 Old Rockside Rd, Independence, OH, and 1:45 p.m. at Akron Northside, located at 27 Ridge St., Akron, OH, on Friday, Nov. 10.

We also encourage park visitors to come salute and wave to our veterans at Peninsula station, located at 1630 Mill St., as the train passes at 10:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 3:30-4 p.m.

For more information, please visit or call 1-800-468-4070 x 1.
