Beautiful Private Model Railroad HO Scale Train Layout at The Corona Model Railroad Society.
The Corona Model Railroad Society was created to represent 1940’s Corona in the heyday of its citrus production. But not only its agriculture. The lumber, mining, manufacturing and all the trackside industries engaged in trade from other communities to other countries. This is the story of how Corona became what it is today, and the railroad’s major role during the past.
An entire house, which sets on the park property, is devoted to the 600 sq. ft. display. The model railroad is fully operational depicting a Corona and Southern California circa 1949 when Corona was “The Lemon Capital of the World” and America’s railroads were in transition from steam to diesel. The model railroad features the Santa Fe Third District with the cities of Corona, Fullerton, and Riverside modeled.
