Ah. Damn. I wasn't sure of the timeline. I was hoping it was still out there somewhere.

;) it's supposed to be a load building challenge, not a challenge the load challenge.  How's about you experts build something we can all find jaw dropping for its creativity, execution and skill?  Yeesh!

Better modeling through peer pressure.

Good evening all, its time to announce the other winner for the first Weekend Challenge!

A quick recap of the points of emphasis:

1. New builds.
2. Clever Engineering.
3. Educational/Exciting.

While there was only one entry that met all 3, there was another entry that sparked a very educational discussion of weight and capacity, making it a very close race and tough decision!

Congratulations @wm3798!

Your rebar load and the discussion of weight limits have earned you the judge's choice prize!

But that's not all!  @Dave V's effort to build magnetic coal loads, specifically for this challenge, has earned him an honorable mention!
Dave has also been doing some exceptional scenery and I bet he could use some CG N Scale wild life


Thank you to everyone who participated!  I'll see you at the next one!


Please take the time to congratulate our three winners, @wm3798, @dougnelson, and @Dave V, and if you have any suggestions in theme or format for the next challenge, feel free to let us know below!

 Humbled and honored!  Now I have to fix the load so the guys down at N scale scale don't have a fit!

Great job to all, I think there were lots of good ideas. Not an easy choice by anyone. Looking forward to the next challenge!
