PCR Contests & Achievement Program Information


Do you want to create better model railroad structures, scenery, or rolling stock? Are you preparing to submit models in a contest, or for Achievement Program evaluation to seek a Merit Award? Are you curious about what gives scenery and models that extra boost from "great" to "outstanding"? If you say "Yes!" to any of these, we have the virtual program for you.

See the PCR Master Calendar for complete information about a very special event July 11, 2020, on what details matter and what judges look for, plus tips and techniques to move your modeling one step up.
