My Beautiful Community in South Central Alaska.
This Web Page is about the HO Scale Consolidated South Western Railroad (CSWRR) and it's friends in Alaska.  Located in the beautiful Knik River Valley, 15 miles South East of Palmer and 45 Miles North East of Anchorage.  The CSWRR depicts a railroad in the South Western US, between Los Angeles and Barstow in the 1980's and operated by the Santa Fe and Union Pacific Railroads. The CSWRR holds Operating Sessions on the second and fourth Saturday afternoon starting around 12 Noon.  The CSWRR also holds mini-operations at other times, usually on Friday evenings.  

These Operating Sessions are open to anyone who wishes to join us to either run trains or to just watch.  For more information about visiting the CSWRR, you may call 907-746-6414 or e-mail
