Daylight Division Autumn Meet

We hope you can join us for a fun-filled day of activities, including clinics, model and photo contests, layout tours, door prizes, the "World Famous" Daylight White Elephant Auction (well, WE know about it!), and, of course, the new abbreviated quarterly Daylight Division business meeting.

Doors open at 9:00 AM with registration, refreshments, contest entries, Meet 'n' Greets. The program begins at 10:00 AM. There will also be time to wander around Gary’s indoor HO scale Louisville & Nashville, Eastern Kentucky Division layout or you can meander under the redwood trees around the outdoor 1:32 scale Southern Pacific Santa Cruz Division.

Registration is $4.00 for NMRA members, $5.00 for non-members. Add $5.00 for lunch (pizza and soda).

There will be favorite and judged model contests. The photo contest is a popular vote contest. Only NMRA members in good standing may enter the contests. Non-NMRA guests are encouraged to bring display-only models and photographs. Awards will be presented to the winners of each contest.

See the "Contests" webpage for more information about the contests and future contest categories.

There will be tables for display-only items, in addition to contest entries. Please bring whatever items (prototype, model or photograph) that you are especially proud of and would like to display for our enjoyment.

Door Prizes & Auction

Donations of new, unused items for door prizes would be especially welcome.

Remember to bring plain-wrapped railroad-related items for the White Elephant Auction. The more the merrier! Think of it as "re-gifting!"

All proceeds benefit the Daylight Division.


Lunch will tentatively be pizza, soda, water and served onsite for $5.00, payable at registration.
