The Brick Train Awards are a virtual, global competition to showcase LEGO® train builders from across the world.
The 2020 awards have 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 awards started 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.
