NEWS & EVENTS

CMRS is proud to host the photographs of Ed Von Nordeck.    “Growing up in Corona in the 1940’s Ed was intrigued with trains and could often be found at the Corona Depot with his Kodak camera where he documented the rail scene for a decade. We thank Ed for allowing us to share  this treasure trove with you.  Also, many thanks to Evan Werkema for his commentary and technical support.”
