NOTE: Our legal address is 220 Peyri Rd. but there is no mail box for that location and a GPS places in the corner of the park, 230 places you at the entry.

We hope to see you there in the future although we have a lot to do before trains will run again but we will have the small layout for people to enjoy running soon.

NCMRS Receives State RecognitionThe California Parks & Recreation Society (CPRS) presented a Citation Award to the North Country Model Railroad Society in recognition of its efforts as a Community Partner with the City of Oceanside during 2014. A plaque signifying the award was presented to NCMRS president Harold Helland at a special District 12 CPRS 2015 Awards and Installation breakfast held in Encinitas on March 25th.
CPRS representatives and civic officials from throughout Dan Diego and Imperial Counties attended the event. The City of Oceanside was represented by Parks & Recreation Department director Margery Pierce, Eileen Turk, manager, and several members of the Oceanside Parks & Recreation Commission including NCMRS member Rich Blankinship. Congratulations to all NCMRS members whose hard work throughout 2014 made the award a reality.
Next Saturday, 3/14, we start the major upgrade to the Trains for Kids room and so it will be out of action for about a month. We hope to have it working again by mid April. The main layout is coming along and we do have some limited trains running when we are not working on the track. Please stop by and see the progress.
Please note that we will be upgrading the Trains for Kids room soon. If you are going to visit please check back here to be sure we have not started and that the layout is available.
