Welcome to the Daylight Division!
We are one of five divisions in the Pacific Coast Region of NMRA, with Coast, Redwood Empire, Sierra and Hawaiian Divisions being the other four.
The PCR Daylight Division serves NMRA members residing in the California counties of Merced, Mariposa, Madera, Fresno, Tulare, Kings, Kern, San Luis Obispo, and Santa Barbara.
Division meets are held quarterly in February, May, August, and November, rotating to different locations throughout the Division to give everyone an opportunity to attend meetings nearby and share the long-distance drives. Carpooling is encouraged! The Daylight Division is a BIG division.
CURRENT NEWSLETTER: The Daylight Observation (3.4 Mb)
CALLING ALL N SCALERS IN BAKERSFIELD, KERN AND SURROUNDING COUNTIES
The local model railroad club in Bakersfield, the Golden Empire Historical & Modeling Society, N Scale Division, is currently looking for any N scalers in Kern County who would like to join in on constructing an 18' x 80' N scale club layout, loosely based on the Bakersfield to Mojave line. We have been working on this layout since around 1996, but the more modelers, the merrier! If you have any questions, please contact Doug Wagner at (661) 589-0391 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Visit our website at www.GEHAMS.net. Thank you!
NEW MEMBERS WANTED!
The Lompoc Valley Model Railroad and Historical Society, 428 North I Street, Lompoc, CA. (southeast of Vandenberg Air Force Base in Daylight Division) (MAP) is seeking new members. Contact Sheldon Green at email@example.com. for more information or visit them on Tuesday or Friday evenings from 7:00-9:00 PM. They would love to have some new members to share in the fun!

The Daylight Observation is now only available online at the Daylight Division website, www.pcrnmra.org/daylight/newsletters.html. Printed issues will no longer be mailed.

CONTRIBUTING TO THE DAYLIGHT OBSERVATION
We want contributions to the newsletter from and for the benefit of our members. Many members cannot make it to our quarterly meets and would like to know more about our comings and goings. You can get AP points for the Model Railroad Author certificate by getting items published in division and regional publications. (See the NMRA website for more information or contact the Daylight AP Chairman, Dave Grenier at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
We're also looking for photographs of your layouts with captions or short stories about each. What do you say people? How about some publicity for your layouts that you work so long and hard on?
