"The PW Competitions 2010 - RESULTS"

The Permanent Way Model Forum

Competitions 2010

Final Scores Breakdown


Diorama Challenge 2010

Overseen by Sean O'Connor


All the entries were greatly appreciated by me this year. It would of course, have been good to see more, and a stricter adherence to the rules too, but in the end the quality of modeling was of such a high standard that it matters little. Mainly what affected the outcome of the competition was how the entries interpreted the rules set out for them.

I was extremely delighted with the original thinking shown by the eventual winner of the competition, and it appears my fellow judges agreed with my sentiments entirely.

Overall I'd like to thank everyone who entered, worked hard, and produced some wonderful results thereafter. Thanks also to everyone who watched on and supported the entrants with great gusto.

Building Challenge 2010

Overseen by Gavin Rose


It was a little disappointing to see so many unfinished projects, but what there was, had good ideas and concepts behind them. I look forward to next year's competitions in the hope of streamlining the competitions to bring more people into the separate categories. Put simply - have a go, you never know where you'll end up finishing! :)

Locomotive Challenge 2010

Overseen by Simon A.C. Martin


I was absolutely thrilled with the response to the locomotive competition this year - so many original and varied ideas and takes on the rules I put forward.

Some entries have scored considerably lower than others simply for being unfinished: do not let that discourage you as I can assure each and every one of you that the ideas presented were of a very high standard. Each and every one of the entries deserves a plaudit for original thinking.

It was an extremely close finish this year, with one single point between first and second place. But I would like to say for the record that the staff were united in their praise for the two highest scoring models - both of extremely high quality, and to that end we'd like to thank both of the modelers in question for their great efforts this year.

This draws the 2010 competitions to a close. Thank you to everyone for supporting the forum competitions this year, and thanks also for your superb efforts throughout 2010.

If the competition winners could contact the respective member of the staff team, for the award they won, their prizes will be shipped out in the next month to their respective new homes.

We plan on removing the 2010 section, and creating a new 2011 section in due course, with new competitions in place and with some refinement of the rules with that we've learned this year.

On behalf of the staff team - thank you for a fantastic 2010 - here's to 2011!

Simon A.C. Martin
