The 2019 NCR Convention, “North Central Crossing”, will feature a “Celebration of Models”. The model display room will concentrate on models and photos brought in for display, but will not have a formal NMRA model contest with place awards. It is our hope that Convention attendees and NMRA members will bring in their favorite models to share and display to other hobby enthusiasts.
There will not be a formal Model Contest as has been the practice at previous conventions.
There will be People’s Choice Awards given to the models with the highest popular vote ballots submitted by Convention attendees.
There will be numerous display tables and space available for the display of your favorite railroad related models and photographs.
There will be four categories for display:
For those NMRA members wishing to have their models judged for credit in the NMRA Achievement Program, NMRA Judges will be on hand to judge the entries and award the appropriate points.
All models displayed or entered for judging must have the proper NMRA contest entry form(s) accompanying the models. These forms can be printed from the NMRA website.
