Shunter contests at FreeLUG

Written by Jeramy Spurgeon on Mar 06, 2010 in - 0 Comments

On the 27-28th of February, the annual FreeLUG meeting (more than 60 attendees) took place at Veneux-les-sablons, France.

Among other activities, we had a contest - or should I say two contests.

The first contest had to be prepared as it consisted in presenting a LEGO train creations on the theme of shunters.

You can see below a sample of entries.


The second competition occured on Sunday and consisted in operating railroad cars on a yard.

It appeared to us that this kind of contest is highly enjoyable and addictive when you set up a symmetric yard and play directly against an opponent, face to face, rather than under the pressure of a timer.
