Welcome!

We are Division 5 (the “Capital Division”) of the North Central Region of the National Model Railroad Association.

The NMRA is a backbone of the model railroad hobby. Without it, many benefits we modelers enjoy would not exist. If you are an NMRA member living in one of these Michigan counties: Branch, Calhoun, Clinton, Eaton, Hillsdale, Ingham, Ionia, Jackson, or Livingston, you are automatically a member of Division Five. Please join us at a meeting and discover the advantages of participating at the division level.

Our regular meetings are held at 1:00 pm on the 2nd Saturday of the month (except June, July, and August).

We no longer meet at the Lansing Public Library. Our new location is the Meridian Township Fire Station 91 and Administration Building, 5000 Okemos Road. Click here for a map, or here for a map and directions.


Lansing Lashup 2018

On October 11th through 14th, 2018 we sponsored “Lansing Lashup 2018”, the annual North Central Region Convention.

Here’s a video of some of the activity:

The Convention was certainly a success! The final attendance was 184, of which 16 were on a one day pass, and 17 were new RailPass NMRA Members. We thank you, one and all, for being there!

Our sincere thanks to all who contributed: (This section is still in progress – check back to see more credits!)

Our Banquet Dinner Speaker was Chuck Geletzke. We greatly enjoyed his presentation drawn from his experiences working on the railroad. His books on his adventures are available here.
