If I'm understanding your question correctly, all entries must be new/original (not shared previously).

That was the background for my question. But I have another train MOC wip which will be finished soon. I will use this one for the contest.

I personally think this is a grate idea for a competition. With any luck it will encourage people who haven’t previously ventured in to lego trains to try their hand at creating some moc’s. Events like these never have a negative impact on a hobby and I hope we see some grate designs and building techniques emerging from the entries.
Hopefully it will spark some fresh interest and generating some fresh faces in the lego trains community.

:cry_happy: very very nice build of this ICE
btw, I also like the flowers at the end of the track, is that frankfurt station ?

I guess when you can build something like this, then building a new train for this contest is no problem for you   :classic:

Well said Cusaeng, and welcome to both Train Tech and EB.  Make sure you stop at the Train Tech Registry to share a little about your Lego Train interest.

Not sure if this has been asked already, but does our entry have to be motorized or could it be like the Hogwarts Express as well?

It's been asked before, but the train does not need to be motorized.

The rules state that it must run on standard L-gauge track (including points), so I would say the different non-train wheels are ok, just so long as it will still ride the rails ok. :thumbup:

Hi guys, we're back after a month's hiatus while roaming abroad.. Lovely surprise here, the collaboration between Railbricks and Eurobricks is really wonderful news, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who made it possible. We'll try hard and think of something zany for this contest... as a matter of fact I've already got an idea what I'd like to build!  :classic:

Cheers once again, looking forward to all the great entries!

What a great initiative TheBrickster.  :thumbup:
Train month...  :classic:
Too bad I already showed my train station before the contest started.
I'm afraid I cannot enter the competition yet, since i'm still building up my train collection.
Good luck to all the participants. I will be watching as a big fan of Lego and everything related to Lego trains.
