Daylight Division
Pacific Coast Region - NMRA

Welcome to the Daylight Division!

We are one of four divisions in the Pacific Coast Region of NMRA, with Coast, Redwood Empire, and Sierra being the other three.

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.

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 carldw@aol.com. Visit our website at www.GEHAMS.net. Thank you!

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 grenida@pacbell.net.)

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?
