The NWV is a 501(c)3 educational organization dedicated to the preservation and perpetuation of the art and craft of model railroading.  Memberships are available to anyone* interested in trains.

Newcomers to the hobby are welcome to join and learn from the other NWV members. Those with more modeling experience are welcome to join and share their knowledge.

Consider either an individual membership or an adult/minor membership and enjoy model railroading with a child or grandchild.

A modest joining fee of $25 with your application and monthly dues of $20* allow you access to a 30’ x 30’ train layout, the opportunity to participate in the construction and operation of a modern model railroad, and the support of other members to increase your knowledge of the hobby.
