The Credit Valley Railway Company is pleased to announce our own in-house clinic program. At our new location, we designed this program with you in mind, as we now have an on-site clinic room. We can now offer our customers more than just terrific products and information from our knowledgeable sales staff, but also targeted instruction on a wide range of model railroading techniques and products. You, the modeller, can now participate in structured clinics where you can learn by doing and asking questions in a friendly atmosphere.
