WESTERN ONTARIO DIVISION                                                  NFR - NMRA


This is the website of the Western Ontario Division (WOD) of the NMRA in Canada. The WOD territory covers all areas that have a postal code starting with N - from Windsor in the Southwest, to Tobermory in the North, to Guelph in the East, and Port Colborne in the Southeast.

What is the NMRA?

The NMRA is the National Model Railroad Association, Inc. It is a non-profit educational association whose purpose is both to promote and foster the hobby of model railroading, and to help set standards within the industry. But the NMRA is far more personal than that.

The NMRA is Fellowship...

The NMRA is people - people across the globe, people in your area, and people just down the street who love model railroading and want to help others get that same enjoyment out of the hobby.

Members at all levels of the NMRA are eager to share their knowledge and friendship.

There are over 150 NMRA Divisions - groups of NMRA members in local communities. Most hold regular meetings featuring interesting and informative presentations on subjects ranging from "how-to" clinics to prototype railroad slide presentations. Many also have a regular newsletter for members.

There are 17 NMRA Regions across the globe and each Region is made up of many Divisions. The WOD is one of 8 divisions grouped in the Niagara Frontier Region. Regions usually hold annual or semi-annual conventions which can include presentations and clinics, as well as tours to model layouts, prototype tours, and even banquets and swap meets. All Regions have a member newsletter.
