Pacific Southwest Region Convention

The biggest annual event for the Pacific Southwest Region is the regional convention. Any NMRA member as well as members of the public are invited to join us at a PSR convention. The convention has many model railroad activities including an array of clinics, prototype tours, contests, layout tours, and a swap meet. The current convention, Grand Canyon Special 2023, will be held June 7-11, 2023, in Flagstaff, Arizona. It features a private train ride to the Grand Canyon on the Grand Canyon Railway in Williams, Arizona.

The Cajon Division Newsletter, The Order Board, April 2023

The April edition of The Order Board Newsletter is now available. As always you can find the older newsletters on our Archive Pages.


You may not know that we are collecting the "Tools & Tips" columns from the old Order Board so you can have easy access to them. They are available on the "Cajon Division Library" page, which you can find under the "Resources" tab.


Please Use the NMRA.ORG On-Line Membership Features to Update Your NMRA Membership Information.

The NMRA HQ Staff is working from home so mail requests for membership updates will take a very long time to process. The HQ Staff recommends that you use the on-line features on the NMRA webpage. You can find the link to the NMRA HQ Page on our Membership page.

Or you can jump directly to the NMRA page via this link.

About the Cajon Division

The Cajon Division with its 350 members is the second largest of the four divisions in the Pacific Southwest Region of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA) covering Southern California and Southern Nevada. We have been serving modelers and the general public in Southern California for over 40 years. By means of meetings, train shows and special events, our quarterly newsletter, The Order Board, and this web site, we seek to promote the hobby to the public, provide assistance to our members, and support educational opportunities involving modeling and railroading in general. We do this through our own meetings but also through the wonderful resource that must not be forgotten, namely the 100% NMRA Model Railroad Clubs and other Model Railroad clubs in our area. Continue
