    Model and Photo Displays

    To increase member participation in having models and photos at the conventions, the Board has agreed to suspend the model and photo contests and instead have display categories.

    This change is to encourage those who do not like contests to bring models they have finished or are works-in-progress to show others what can be done with ready-to-run, kits, or scratchbuilt models. All scales are welcome. Similarly, please bring your photos of NKP subjects, even if they're just snapshots showing something of interest to other NKP enthusiasts.

    All modeling categories are included: structures, locomotives, rolling stock, track, maintenance-of-way, and dioramas. There are many modelers in the NKPHTS who could share with us what they are working on and could influence other members to build models, dioramas, or layouts. Any NKP-related (including railroads in which the NKP had an interest) models or photos from the earliest days to "what could have" for modern modelers are welcome. Will you participate?

    If you wish to display your model or photo, please download the entry form(s) below and bring the completed form with you to the convention.
