About Us

Rick grew up chasing trains along Cajon Pass and Tehachapi in Southern California with his best friend, Tim Dickinson.  Rick’s life-long love of model trains led him to purchase Tennessee Valley Custom Models in 2021. Now based in Maryland, TVCM is expanding, with new sign options for modelers.

We’ve even had to take on staff! Our Quality Control Inspector is involved in all aspects of the business, from production to marketing.
