List of entries to the 2019 LNWR Model Railway Competition by category

 

As you will see, the standard of the entries across the board was superb. They all do justice to the memory of the London North Western Railway. The judges' task was therefore clearly a very difficult one. The announcement of the winners of each category will be made on Saturday 2nd February at the Stafford Model Railway Exhibition and the result will be posted on the LNWR forum and RMWeb within 24 hours.

 

RMWeb members will be given the opportunity to choose the overall winner for 2019. A Poll will be made available soon and will close on Friday 1st February 2019.

You will note that some modellers posted their entry within the main section of the Competition's thread whilst others created their own sub-topic. This means that you will need to scroll down to see the entry and in some instances you will see more than one entry on the same page. Next year we will ensure all entries are standalone. This section requires two links to be added which hopefully will be completed by Monday (21st) evening.

There are a lot of duplicated links in the first post that don't take you to the correct entry.

Nile do you mean those "page 5" links? As I understand it you are supposed to scroll down the page and find the entry in question (it is possible to link to a specific post though, perhaps worth considering).

 

Nevertheless I shall be sueing the organisers of the competition. When I reached the infrastructure entries my jaw dropped so frequently that I now need surgery.

Rather defeats the point of having a link if you then have to go searching for it. I'll have forgotten what I was looking for before finding it.

Not sure it should be under model engineering either.

I found your entry easily enough, and very good it is too.

Not sure it should be under model engineering either.

You had to choose which category you entered when completing the entry form.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi

 

The competition standards were truly amazing to my mind. I particularly was blown away by the locos at all scales!! One day maybe ......  :unsure: but who were the winners etc and what was announced on 2nd Feb?? I Can't find it anywhere? I've tried here, the Stafford Railway Circle Site and the LNWR Society site??

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction please??

That’s odd, as not everyone is on FB. 

Just as an observation, wouldn’t it have been fairer to only allow models that have been specifically made for the competition? And by an individual?

I do think there has been an element of making it up as one goes along, which for a first outing seems to me to be fair enough. The final stages did end up being skewered by the RMWeb shut-down and upgrade being unfortunately timed to coincide with the Stafford show at which the results were from the beginning advertised to be announced.

 

If the competition had been limited to models specifically made for the competition, then there would have been far fewer entries - certainly not mine. The competition was announced at the end of July; for most people, six months is a short time in modelling. Let's hope that the idea that the competition will be annual will be motivating people to start projects that can be entered in 2020, 2021... 2030!

 

The competition's objective of showcasing excellent modelling of LNWR subjects has certainly been achieved. As an entrant, I for one don't have a problem with the process (apart from the RMWeb hiccup) or the outcome. I'm on the lookout for other line society competitions in which I could enter a wagon or two!

My apologies for the late posting. I had assumed someone else was posting on RMWeb - but clearly I was wrong for which I sincerely apologise.

 

We had a perfect storm hit us as both Tim and I had family with health issues, Tim's 93 year old Dad breaking his hip and my wife falling ill on Christmas Day and still under a regime of medication, visits to the hospital etc. We will make sure that some of the organisers will be well below the age of 70 next time!!!!

 

As an update.

The winners are to receive a year's membership to the Society plus a selection of publications - not one was a member of the Society. They will also receive a prize donated from a variety of sources, two sets from Bachmann, two first class rail passes from London Northwestern Trains, an etched brass coach kit from Stevenson Carriages.

 

All entries were entered in a draw for a LNWR print from the railway artist Gerald Broom. Mike Lynch (Paternoster Row), who entered the model of Perry Barr station, was the lucky winner of the print.

 

I will be contacting everyone, but because of GDPR, this information currently lies with our secretary Tim, it will take a day or so to contact each and every person.

 

As everyone knows this was our first competition and to be honest it was more challenging that we thought. We had deliberately made the rules flexible so that we didn't define the type of entry we were looking for. On receiving the entries we decided there was a need to create an additional category, 'Model Engineering' because how do you compare building a 3.5 inch live steam locomotive over ten years with a kit built one?

 

We will over the next few months be contacting everyone who entered to ask how we could improve things from their perspective - we already know the issues we faced and what needs to be done there. One aspect was whether to stick to the category approach, which allows entries from all gauges, or be more specific regarding gauge/scratch built/kit categories. We believe that as the LNWR is very much a minority interest we cannot have too many categories. Their/your thoughts would therefore be very valuable.

As part of this process we also thought the winners of the competition should be offered the opportunity to judge next year's competition. This we felt would help to iron out any bias that might unintentionally occur. What are the thoughts of people on this forum?

Clearly with volunteers, of any age, there is a limit to their free time so the main lesson we have learnt is that we need more people to help. Our next Newsletter already has our appeal for this extra help.
 

Mike
