Getting Started in Model Railroading
The NMRA has developed the "Introduction To Model Railroading" to introduce people to model railroading. Our goal is to help those who are interested in building a model railroad but who have never done it before, or to assist those who may have a simple track plan and now want to learn more.
Why Join the NMRA?
Being a member of the NMRA entitles you to a multitude of services, all geared toward expanding your enjoyment of the hobby.
The NMRA was the organization that set those Standards and Recommended Practices which still guide manufacturers and consumers alike.
The NMRA's Achievement Program, or "AP", is designed to help modelers improve their skills and get more out of their hobby. The "AP" gives recognition to members who have displayed a high degree of skill or service to the hobby.
