Your chance to vote!

awards2019Last year, MRE was nominated and went on to win Silver for best website in the British Model Railway Awards. This year, it’s been nominated again!

Award voting has now closed. The results will be published soon. Check back for details.

I’m incredible proud that MRE has been nominated by readers given the other commercially bigger sites and forums also in the running. Especially given, as I’ve mentioned before, that it’s just me on my own doing all the writing, photography, coding, testing and researching of the tips and articles published free on the site and managing the ever growing companion Facebook community.

MRE is a labour of love and your vote for it in these awards would really encourage and motivate me to develop the site further, creating more tips, advice and guides.

To vote for MRE, click here [now closed], and select your entries in the various classes of entry. The website of the year is on the final page. Just tick the box next to ModelRailwayEngineer if you want to support me. You don’t have to vote in every category on the list – if all you want to do is vote for me, you don’t have to pick an entry in the other sections – just leave them blank.

Thanks, I really appreciate your support.


PS: There are also other award classes you can vote in; such as Retailer Customer Service Award in which I voted for Justin and the team at Scale Model Scenery, who have a great reputation for the service they provided.
