Division of the Pacific Southwest Region of the

National Model Railroad Association


September 14, 2020



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.

The Cajon Division Has a New Director

Jeff Herrmann has moved out of the Region and thus left the Director position vacant. The election of a new Director for the Cajon Division resulted in Richard Hock getting the position. About 16% of the members cast their ballots and the result was unanimous. We welcome Richard on board. A bio and picture will follow.

The Cajon Division Newsletter September 2020

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

     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.
