    Brick Train Awards 2020 winners

    Hi all, The winners of the Brick Train Awards 2020 have been announced (there's a 15 minute announcement video if you prefer that), so here's a round up of the global winners (you can find winners in each category for Americas, Asia, Australasia and Europe linked there too); Best steam locomotive P2 “Prince of Wales” Samuel Sims Australia, Australasia Just a stunning model - all of the details and customisations made this the standout entry in a category with a lot of tough competition. I love the use of the bucket handles and the lining particularly. Best diesel locomotive Bangor & Aroostook Diesel Alexander Geary USA, Americas A superb rendition of this American loco - particularly impressive tube bending, as mine always end up messy! Best LEGO® Electric Locomotive Alstom Pendolino ED250 PKP Intercity Mateusz Waldowski Poland, Europe This was one of my personal favourites, and I'm glad it came through from the Europe region to win best global electric locomotive. The shaping work is beautiful, and the nose is well captured - definitely a hard profile to replicate in LEGO bricks! Best Other LEGO® Locomotive Narrow Gauge Climax Geared Loco Alexander McCooke Australia, Australasia Another standout model for me - it looks like its real life prototype so closely; it looks like an O Gauge model to me at a distance. Best LEGO® Passenger Wagon Amtrak Amfleet II Andy Tanjaroon USA, Americas One of three digital renders to make it through to the global awards, the profile of this passenger car is really nicely captured - I'd love to see it built in the brick. Best LEGO® Freight Wagon GATX Tanker Wagon Mateusz Waldowski Poland, Europe Another European win for this superb tanker wagon. The undercarriage details are nicely done, and the few smaller stickers/vinyls give it that little bit extra. Wouldn't mind a rake of these to run at home! Best TFOL Model JR西日本125系電車 / JR West 125 series Y.Higashibata Japan, Asia The TFOL awards was one of my favourite categories, as it bought out so much hidden talent I hadn't seen before. This render of a Japenese unit is superb; lovely shaping, and the cab front work leaves a smooth finish for some challenging angles. Best LEGO® Group Display MLTC Display Melbourne LEGO Train Club Australia, Australasia Not sure there's not surprise at this one - the MTLC layout at Brickvention each year is a huge collaborative work, and each section is beautifully detail - the photo above shows only half of the layout! Best LEGO® Individual Display 2020 City Tim Howell USA, Americas A lovely little city display - custom cars, vans, buildings and locos, and it looks more finished than my LEGO cities every did! This one has inspired me to set my own city up again - it's been 6 months since I moved house and much of my LEGO city is still in boxes! Best LEGO® Structure Blast furnace Yvonne Strijbos Netherlands, Europe This was another "wow" model when I saw the entry come in. The above shot is a render, but the builder has also built it in the brick, and it's a lovely piece of railway infrastructure - a lot going on in a relatively small space. Thanks to everyone who entered this year - and we have the happy news that the Brick Train Awards will return for 2021 in February/March, to allow contestants time to enter OcTRAINber too. We'll be looking at adapting and adding some categories to better suit model entries, as well as a few other changes based on feedback we've had.

You can post as many entries of your you would like. 6 or less photos of the model and one video are allowed and one photo of the prototype if you want(this is what was done for the BTA's) and please if you decide to post don't go on rambling about why you didn't win and be a sore loser but don't brag if you won.
