Welcome to Fresno!

Daylight Division logo  

The members of the Daylight Division are proud to present the Sugar Pine Centennial 2021 Pacific Coast Region Convention from Wednesday, April 21 through Saturday, April 24, 2021. The start date is correct! Keep reading for more details about the Advance Section on a fourth day!

New! Convention Cars now on sale!



Because the NMRA National Convention, Rails by the Bay 2021, will be hosted by the PCR in Santa Clara, July 4–10, 2021, this year's PCR convention is a "mini-convention." What the heck is a "mini-convention?" you ask? Well, it's a three-day affair, instead of the usual four days. It may be fewer days, but we're planning so many activities and events that you will not be able to get them all in!

Promo Video Added!

Be sure to watch the promotional video by Bruce Morden at describing the activities to be offered at Sugar Pine Centennial 2021. Enjoy!

Fourth Day Added!

We have added a fourth day to the Sugar Pine Centennial 2021 Convention! We will have an "Advance Section", on Wednesday afternoon, April 21, for an excursion to the Hillcrest & Wahtoke Railroad, located in nearby Reedley, just southeast of Fresno. See the Excursions page for details.

There will also be a drawing for an opportunity to operate the live steam engine at Hillcrest & Wahtoke Railroad (with the help of a qualified engineer) for everyone who registers and purchases a ticket for the H&WRR excursion by December 31, 2020.

Packed into those three four days will be a veritable smorgasbord of model railroading activities that you've come to expect at PCR conventions, including clinics, contests, excursions, layout tours, operating sessions, banquet, and more!

The Sugar Pine Centennial 2021 PCR Convention hotel is the Wyndham Garden Fresno Yosemite Airport, 5090 East Clinton Way, Fresno, conveniently located adjacent to the Fresno Yosemite International Airport. This facility offers modern comfortable accommodations and complete convention services under one roof. MAP

Convention Car New!

This year's convention car is a custom-made resin casting (not 3D printed as stated in the 12/15/20 PCR Newsletter) flat car with Kadee couplers and wheel sets. The Sugar Pine Lumber Railroad owned six of these all-steel moving cars, numbered 1 through 6, to transport its electric yarders and loaders. The yarders pulled themselves onto the cars by means of a brow log and cable hook-up. Yarders are a critical link in the chain of tools required to get lumber from a mountainside to a loading area, where it can be transported to the mill. See page 101 in Rails to the Minarets, by Hank Johnston, for a photo of the prototype.

Only 50 of these HO-scale ready-to-run limited edition cars will be made for the convention. A resin casting crate load with the Sugar Pine Centennial 2021 logo is included and may be displayed as a load on or off the car. A separate decal sheet with car numbers 1 through 6 is included, so you can number it as you wish.
NOTE: Limit 3 cars per person.
