Hot Off the Wire…



The New Jersey Division is hosting the 2015 MER convention to be held October 22-25, 2015, and the Philadelphia Division has promised to help the Jersey guys make this the best convention ever. We need people to work on the convention committee as well as those who could volunteer giving clinics, and hosting layout tours and op sessions. Or perhaps you have connections to arrange a prototype tour. Also anyone specifically interested in coordinating these activities. Here's an opportunity to earn points toward your AP Volunteer certificate. Please contact Howard Kaplan or Rob Hinkle if you are interested.

Welcome Aboard!

We are the Philadelphia Division of the National Model Railroad Association, proudly celebrating our 45th year as of May 24th. Our passion is model railroading and our mission is promoting this great hobby through enjoyment, education, and fellowship. We serve the southeastern Pennsylvania counties of Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery, and Bucks, as well as the entire state of Delaware. If you are a member of the NMRA and live in any of these areas, you are automatically a member of the Philadelphia Division.  Read more about us

Model Railroad of the Month:

Bill Fagan’s N Scale Union Pacific

Bill has developed a successful technique for mounting a miniature camera on the front of a train and recording the journey as one would see it from the cab of a locomotive.  He is happy to record anyone’s layout as long as he is permitted to post the video on YouTube.  Below is the video of his layout.  Click here to see photos of Bill’s layout.
