MRE Another Gong

BRMA 2019MRE has won Silver in the 2019 British Model Railway awards.

I’m incredibly proud to find that (this website) has added another gong to its trophy cabinet.

This time winning Silver for the Website of the Year in the 2019 British Model Railway awards.

MRE took 20 per cent of the vote which is a significantly up on the 9 per cent it took in the awards last year, a huge result in itself.

Thank you so much to all those who nominated and voted for me and congratulations to the other winners, who won. Kudos to Hornby in particular who won Overall Manufacturer of the Year, OO Gauge Manufacturer of the Year and Diesel, Electric and Steam Locomotive awards.

The full results are available on RMWeb.
