The Midwest Region Spring Convention -- May 15 -18, 2014

Railfun 2014
-- will be hosted by the Fox Valley division with the assistance of the
Du Page Div. in Schaumburg, IL. This year we are planning a great line up of layout & prototype tours, clinics, non-rail activities, popular vote plus model & photo contest opportunities. There will be something for everyone to participate in and enjoy. Special planning focus will keep the attendee cost as low as possible but not sacrifice convention content.
Early registration is only 45 bucks! Join in on the fun. Click on RailFun 2014 for all the details. Early registration closes May 2, 2014. Registration resumes with full fare rates on-site at the hotel May 15th at 4:00 pm until noon on Saturday May 17th.

Welcome to the Midwest Region of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA). As illustrated by the Divisions page, the Region includes parts of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Wisconsin. The purposes of the Region are 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 its purposes 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.

Meetings of NMRA members residing in the Region are normally held in conjunction with the annual convention. Between these meetings, a Board of Directors governs and administers the Region. The Board consists of five Officers, seven Directors-at-Large and ten Division Directors. A Division Director is elected or appointed by each Division. The President, Vice President and Directors-at Large are elected by all Region members. For information about the next election, click here.
