Welcome to the Midwest Region of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA).

"The purpose of the Region is to promote, stimulate, foster, and encourage by all manner and means the art and craft of model railroading and the preservation of the hobby's history, science, and technology."

The Region accomplishes this through its Divisions, publishing the Waybill (a quarterly newsletter), holding Conventions and by promoting the NMRA Achievement Program. See the Division web pages for detailed activities in your local area.
