Letter from our Superintendent

Greetings from the Los Angeles Division of the Pacific Southwest Region/NMRA.  Glad you decided to enter our website!  Have a look around.

Our membership includes all National Model Railroad Association (NMRA) members residing in either the Los Angeles or Ventura Counties of Southern California.  We are a talented group of model railroaders, prototype followers and general enthusiasts that enjoy sharing our hobby with others regardless of scale or focus.  Some of us are model building experts; others scenic artists.  Our ranks include historians, prototype rivet counters, scale operators, electronics wizards, technology gurus, and creative geniuses.  All bonded by a common thread -- we are model railroaders.  (Likewise, we enjoy getting together for Division meets and at Regional conventions to share in the hobby.)

If you are not presently a member of the NMRA, I encourage you to join.  The benefits are enormous: including advocacy, standards, and social interaction; not to mention helping to educate you more regarding the hobby of model railroading.  When you become a member you also will be automatically assigned to a local region and division based on your home address.  To learn more, go to NMRA Membership Application and Renewal

So take a moment and scroll through our various pages.  View some of our modeling efforts, find how to contract one of our Officers for assistance, or learn of nearby shops, clubs, or points of interest.  We welcome all individuals interested in model railroading and will strive to get you in contact with the right person to answer your questions.
