    Hi, just some thoughts for subjects for future competitions, sparked by watching Marklin of Sweden
    Halloween theme - leading up to finish on Halloween night
    Fireworks theme - leading up to finish on 5th November
    Special Wagon - made from scratch/kitbash for OOG load (like my Schnabel and Reactor)
    Non prototypical loco - bespoke experimental engine from your imagination Steam speed :eek:
    Scratch built bridge
    Working bridge - lift/swing
    Animated item - {Non purchased} crossing/kids swing/crane/etc Peter Baining
     
    jakesdad13 and SMR CHRIS like this.

    Steam speed does it for me. A competition to build a steam speed loco. Brilliant. :avatar: I'll have a think about that one.

    Thanks for the idea. I'll look at your other links :thumbs:

    It's intriguing to think what steam loco's would look like if Electric and Diesel had not come along, I have always thought liquid fuels and a condensing boiler with water retrieval would have been the next logical steps, not sure why oil fired never caught on! Ditto, why gas turbines never began to prolificate either.
