'Build a loco' Challenge voting now open

Recommended Posts

We launched a challenge on RMweb in March 2015 to stimulate more modellers to get building. We broke it down into three categories, scratchbuilt or kitbuilt locomotives, modified ready-to-run locomotives or even static display items to encourage the widest possible participation. However, all entries, bar one, have come into the kit or scratch built category which would have initially appeared the most challenging. Well done to everyone who participated, over 50 people started projects off and we can now show the completed entries which have been submitted by their creators into the final stages where you, the reader, can vote for your favourite project.


Voting is open on RMweb from now until 10th April and the results will appear in the May issue of BRM and on RMweb.


Links to the individual build topics can be found here - http://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/106717-build-a-loco-challenge-entries/


The entries are as follows and you can cast your vote here - http://www.rmweb.co.uk/poll/index.php?sid=47836&lang=en- you will be asked to vote for your 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th choices.
