The Brick Train Awards are a virtual, global competition to showcase LEGO® train builders from across the world.
Brick Train Awards history
The awards started in 2020 as a response to much of the world being in lockdown due to COVID-19, giving a chance for LEGO® train fans around the world to meet and compete internationally. The competition is organised by Richard (aka Bricks McGee) of LEGO Northern UK Railway and supported by Brick Model Railroader and a range of generous sponsors from across the world.
The 2020 Brick Train Awards had 10 categories for judging the best LEGO® models for locomotives, rolling stock and LEGO® train displays. Each category is judged at a regional level, and the winners from each category then go head-to-head in global awards.
The Brick Train Awards 2021 had 13 categories with 774 entries.
