Welcome Aboard!

We are the Philadelphia Division of the Mid-Eastern Region (MER) of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA), proudly celebrating our 45th year as of May 24, 2014. Our passion is model railroading and our mission is promoting this great hobby through enjoyment, education, and fellowship, both within the organization itself, and by introducing the hobby and the NMRA to the public.

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.
