Dinner on the Train

With the recently announced changes to local, state, and CDC COVID-19 masks protocols, we want to remind our guests that CVSR falls under Transportation Security Administration (TSA)  and Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) regulations. Guests, volunteers, and staff are required to wear masks until further notice when on the train, unless they are eating or drinking while in their seats, and at any of our facilities despite local and state regulations.
