NMRA AP Awards

Started working on my AP Awards in 2017. I have worked on them instead of the railroad.

On some of them it was just filling out the paperwork.

In January I picked up five AP Awards.

I have started a wall of fame in the train room.

The two empty spots are for the last two AP Awards to finish my Master Model Railroader (MMR) in theĀ National Model Railroad Association (NMRA).

I need a total of seven AP Awards to make it to the MMR Award. I’m working on getting the last two finished up now.

I have turned in my AP Award for Author in March and I’m waiting to hear back.

The last AP Award that I’m doing is the building of train cars. Four of them, have to be scratch built. Four of them, have to be super detailed. One of the eight has to be a passenger car. A total of four merit awards have to be earned out of the eight cars.

Scratch built two cars and earned Two Merit Awards.

At the end of August and added more awards to the wall.

    Congrats on your awards! I’ve been working on my since I was about 18, but life just keeps getting in the way. I’m making it a point to only work on things that will get me finished.
