|Corona, like many towns, developed and prospered only through the presence of a railroad. It's an important part of our
history. One that can be represented, not only educationally, but historically as an exciting visual model.
The Corona Model Railroad Society was created to represent 1940's Corona in the heyday of its citrus production. But not
