Thank You R.C. and Katharine M. Musson Foundation

Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad recently received an $8,000 grant from The R.C. and Katharine M. Musson Foundation in support of its “Powering Ahead” Capital Campaign. CVSR is the midst of a first-ever capital campaign in support of a master plan to expand, enhance and preserve its fleet.

The R.C. and Katharine M. Musson Foundation was established by the late Robert C. and Katharine M. Musson to distribute funds to charitable, religious, educational and scientific organizations that qualify as exempt organizations under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.

The grant will be used to support the design, creation, and implementation of an Edu-trainment Car, an on-board rolling children’s museum.  This project is a key priority of CVSR’s current $5 million capital campaign, of which fleet preservation is a focus. The Edu-trainment Car is designed specifically to more effectively engage the attention of young children with interactive exhibits, hands-on activities, and programming.

CVSR would like to thank The R.C. and Katharine M. Musson Foundation for their continued support of CVSR and its mission to provide educational, recreational and heritage railroad experiences and to provide alternative transportation to and within Cuyahoga Valley National Park and the Ohio & Erie Canalway.
