Regions and Divisions

The NMRA is divided into 18 Regions which cover the United States, Australasia, Canada, the British Isles and Europe. There are other NMRA organizations in the rest of the world. Each of the 15 Regions which cover the United States and Canada are made up of, with one exception, two or more adjoining states/provinces or parts of states. The NMRA Regions elect officers and publish newsletters. Each Region holds one or more conventions each year, usually two-day affairs on weekends, making it easy for members to attend.

Members have prepared a downloadable Regions & Divisions Handbook, containing ideas and assistance in running and maintaining a Region or Division, as well as a Division Superintendent's Handbook to assist Division officers in understanding what is involved at the Division level. These living documents provide insights into the activities possible at all levels of the NMRA organization.

Check the map or consult the list below to find out which Region you are in:

The Regions are further divided into Divisions, which also have officers and publish newsletters. Most Divisions hold one or more one-day meets each year. The smaller size of Divisions makes it even easier for members to attend these events. Consult the President of your Region or the NMRA Headquarters office to find out your Division and the name and phone number of its Superintendent. Many (but not all) Division meets are announced in the NMRA Bulletin.

Note to NMRA Region and Division officers: please send updates to the information below, especially Email addresses and URLs for Region/Division pages, to the web [at] (subject: Change%20to%20Region%20information) (NMRA web team). We'd also like to add links to Division Newsletters, so if your Division has newsletters online, please send me the link to the page.
