North American Rail Alliance

The North American Rail Alliance or NARA for short is a group of people worldwide modeling the North American rail scene.

NARA has members in Australia,the United States,Canada, England,France,and Sweden,and now we have members from Portugal,Switzerland, and South Africa.We have added Mexico,and now Germany.

We are a multiscale group consisting of both Freelance and Prototype modelers.The one and only rule is that you model North American railroading.

The photo at the top of the page replacing Russ's NARA loco picture is of a model done by Michael Kreiser,our German Member.

NARA is now on Facebook
