Contests for 2019

THE MODEL CONTEST BOX

Before I get into what next session holds for the various contests, I want to take a moment to thank Dave Lawler, better known as "Mr. Cheerios", for all the fine model contests through the years that he has put out there for all of us to enjoy and participate in. Thanks again Dave!

I will list the different contest subject matters in a minute, but first I want you to know that some months will see a contest that is quite open for interpretation for the solution to the challenge. Other months will be more specific and not all contests will involve steel wheels on rails. Somethings will change and others will remain the same; for example, the ballots will give you the opportunity to vote 1st, 2nd, and 3rd but we will continue to have two categories; models and dioramas.

Fall 2019

September- A crane on rails. Anything from a bridge crane to a big hook or not so big hook to a little burro crane.

October- Main line steam locomotives. Nothing smaller than a 2-8-2.

November- A re-purposed box car. The car can be with or without trucks.

December- no contest, Christmas party

January- Automobile carrier rail cars. Any era, from the earliest through todays rail cars.

February- Railroad control towers Anything from mainline to yard towers.

March- Unusual/ interesting flat car load on a flat car.

April- Pullman/ sleeper passenger car. Any era, from heavy weights to Amtrak.

May- Rubber tire railroad vehicle.

No Contest in June.

Thanks Ben and Dave, Joe

SO START NOW!
