Welcome to Cincinnati Division 7! We are a large and very active Division in the Mid Central Region (MCR) of the National Model Railroad Association (NMRA). Division 7 encompasses the geography around the greater Cincinnati area including parts of Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. This "Tri-state" area is well known in the model railroading community as the home of interesting railroad attractions and numerous spectacular model railroads. We welcome new or experienced model railroaders in all scales and gauges who are looking to meet other modelers and to learn and share inspiring model railroading experiences. Please visit our Introductory page for more about us, plus see our Next Meetings page and Events page for the dates and details of all our gatherings.
