Welcome to the web site for the Coal Division, more formally known as Division 9 of the Mid Central Region  of the National Model Railroad Association. Division 9 includes much of West Virginia south of Clarksburg, parts of southeastern Ohio, and a  few counties in extreme northeastern Kentucky.  Click the About Us tab  to learn more.  We welcome all guests at our meetings and hope that once you meet us you will be interested in joining.

The purpose of the Coal Division is to educate the public and to promote the hobby of model railroading and the history of railroads in America.

The May issue of Up The  Holler, our monthly newsletter is now available.

Our calendar of events is in a state of disruption for the time being due to the COVID-19 virus.  Our annual “Steel is King” event has been replaced by a virtual membership meeting, see the calendar for details.  A face to face meeting in June is looking unlikely, we will let you know what to expect as the time gets closer.
