     About the Cajon Division

Welcome to the Cajon Division’s redesigned web pages. Several new features have been added, or re- introduced, to our pages, such as the “this and that” section. You can look at this site as a starting point for your journey into the wonderful world of model railroading. While we may not have all the answers here, we have links to many other places where you can find incredible information about our hobby.

 

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 Souther 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
