The National Model Railroad Association (NMRA) is the largest organization devoted to the development, promotion, and enjoyment of the hobby of model railroading.
The NMRA British Region promotes North American modelling in the United Kingdom. To find out more about the NMRA, please have a browse through our website where you will find out all about the benefits of joining this friendly Association.
Recently NMRA-BR members were present at the Ally Pally show, spreading Know How.
Dan Spalding provided these pictures of his Hacienda Ave switching layout, which he brought to the show.
Fresh from the Christmas and New Year celebrations, the RS Tower boys, which include some of our own NMRA Members came together and organized a modular railroading meeting, similar to others organized in the past. This wasn't an official event, and therefore wasn't broadly announced, but this serves to show what is possible if you get a few guys and galls together and go play trains!
The meet took place on January 3rd in Exeter, and was reported to be a great success! It was visited by likeminded model railroaders from various corners of the British Isles.

There is a new featured video on the homepage this week, this time from the Western Union July meet in 2015. It shows how much fun it can be to operate on a modular layout, and in their case, once a month. Enjoy.
