The Chairman's Cup was awarded to the builder of a model which best captures the visual characteristics of the full size item it represents. Models of Locomotives, Stock, Buildings and other items needed for a model railway layout were welcome. In early incarnations models had to fit a particular category, but that requirement was been removed in 2014.
The Chairman's cup has been awarded at Scaleforum since 1978. The rules have varied a little over time, but the aim has remained to award the cup to the entered model considered best in show. It is currently being rested.
