Hugh Elsol Memorial Award

Rules For The Hugh Elsol Memorial Award

Hugh Elsol championed the smaller scales, particularly those models which ran on elevated tracks. In keeping with Hugh’s philosophy the rules for this award are:

  •  The Hugh Elsol Memorial Award is presented to the owner of the best locomotive seen running on the elevated track at the Annual AALS Convention.
  •  The award shall be judged by the AALS Executive; no entry form is required.
  •  Models built by a commercial or professional builder are not eligible.
  •  A locomotive may receive the award only once.
  •  The winner will hold the award for twelve months, have it engraved and guarantee its return to the following year’s Convention.
  •  If there are no suitable recipients the award may be held over to the next Convention.
