The Lantern's photo contest deadline is December 29!

    Robert Weaver, the stalwart editor of The Lantern (the official publication of the WMRC) , would like to remind all members that the deadline for January's photo contest is fast approaching! The deadline is on Monday, December 29 at midnight. Up to $30 is available in prize money, and you'll get you photo on the cover of The Lantern if you win!

   December's theme was "The Spirit of Christmas". This month's theme is "snow" (but we'd like to see a train somewhere in there as well). It doesn't have to be a prototype photo - we accept images of model railroads too, as long as they've got some snow on or around them somewhere.  Be sure to submit your image in a vertical format!

   December's winner was the dashing and intrepid Paul Lemon, who shot this wonderful image of the CP Holiday Train. Paul is one of 10 members we have from across the pond, and we're grateful to each and every one of them for their many contributions and devotion to the club!

  1. Thank you Paul for your support.

    The WMRC is celebrating it's 60th Anniversary in April 2015 and in recognition of that milestone the official publication of the Club, The Lantern, is conducting a monthly photographic contest. Each member whether young or old and Regular or Associate, (in good standing), is allowed one entry per month in the photo competition.

    With each passing day the number of entries is slowly approaching that magical number of ten when the prize award doubles to $30. We are not there yet, but we are so very close! So quit procrastinating and get your picture in to Robert Weaver

    The theme for this month is 'SNOW' and must include a railway artifact: a train, railway infrastructure, equipment, parts or a model and be taken during the current year. A descriptive caption must accompany your entry and may include any technical information that you wish to provide. Please insure that the photograph is in portrait mode, (on end), in order to fit a 7.5 x 10 inch space on the cover of The Lantern.

    So, if you live in Medicine Hat, Chicago, Montreal or somewhere in between and are a member in good standing then you can enter our 60th Anniversary Contest. Just send your entry to The Lantern Editor, Robert Weaver by December 29, 2014 at MIDNIGHT.
