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 2018, I picked up five AP Awards.
Master Builder – Scenery
Model Railroad Engineer – Civil
Model Railroad Engineer – Electrical

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 the 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 2018, 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.
