CONTEST GUIDELINES

Most of our model contest categories are self-explanatory, but we wanted to provide some clarification on some points to help avoid any confusion during your model planning or entry process.

1) In any category that involves a single standalone model, such as Steam Locomotive, Diesel, Speeder, Rolling Stock, Logging Truck, and so on: The model will be displayed by itself, with no ancillary hardware. For example, a Steam Locomotive or Diesel would not also include a caboose or rolling stock such as log cars. A locomotive displayed with one or more cars would be reclassified in the M – Equipment Set class.

2) A model in item #1 above will be displayed by itself, without a decorative base. A “decorative base” would include a piece of track surrounded by some scenic material, a bridge, or some other decorative display accessory. A model displayed on a decorative base will be reclassified as H-Diorama or I-Mini Diorama, depending on size.

3) New class M – Equipment Set: This class covers a set of equipment which typically operates together. The most obvious is a train, such as a log train, work train, and so on. If you enter a train, due to space restraints, it must have a maximum of eight pieces – this could be a loco, caboose and six cars; a loco and seven cars; a string of eight cars; you can do the math on this one. It could also, for example, be a steam donkey on a moving flat, perhaps accompanied by other cars full of related hardware.

The equipment does not need to be railroad hardware. For example, the equipment that makes up a sawmill’s interior, including the head rig, edger, cutoff saw, planers and so on are also an Equipment Set.

4) H – Diorama: Due to space limitations, we are limiting the maximum diorama size to six square feet. This could be a 2x3 foot model, a 1-1/2x4 foot model, or any size combination that adds up to six square feet at maximum.

5) Commercially-built models are not permitted in the contest, but they can be presented for display only as space allows. “Commercially-built” does not mean a model built or kitbashed from kit, it means a model built for hire (or built for free as a charitable contribution) for display in a museum, a customer’s personal collection and so on.

6) A logging camp building on skids or a sled will be classified as a G-structure. A logging camp building on trucks, designed to be moved on trucks (either standard trucks or disconnects) will be classified as L-Camp Car, and the model must be displayed on trucks.
