Sanders’ CVSR Book Released by Fonthill Media

A book featuring the history of the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad that was written by Akron Railroad Club President Craig Sanders has been released.

Although the book was published by Fonthill Media, it is being marketed by Arcadia Publishing.

Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad features 175 photographs of which all but three are in color.

Photographs for the book were contributed by Akron Railroad Club members Peter Bowler, Marty Surdyk, Robert Farkas, Paul Woodring, Mark Demaline, Edward Ribinskas, Jim Mastromatteo and Tom Fritch.

Other photographs were contributed by Jim Semon, Robert Todten and Jerry Jordak.

The book uses text and photographs to tell the story of the CVSR from its launch in June 1975 as the Cuyahoga Valley Line operating with former Grand Trunk Western steam locomotive No. 4070.

Virtually every locomotive used by the railroad during its 42-year history is shown in the book.

There is also a history of the line and an overview of its operations by the Baltimore & Ohio before it was purchased by the National Park Service in 1987.
