About our Rewards Program
So far our n-scale database features thousands upon thousands of items. But there are tens of thousands of engines and rolling stock yet to be cataloged.
We need your help. We need n-scale enthusiasts to populate this database with reference data on unique (new to the database) n-scale trains.
To reward your efforts, you get free items of your choice from the list below. We even provide free shipping in the U.S.Initial response to our Rewards program has been very positive. Read our blog.
Here's what you can earn!
We want to make our Rewards Program as appealing as possible to as many train enthusiasts as possible. That is why we have collected a variety of trains / train sets (less expensive to very expensive) that you can earn by entering just 25 trains or as many as 2000 trains. We also realize that train enthusiasts collect different rolling stock and engines, which may not be listed below. As a result, we are also including a "general-appeal" item, a 1-year subscription to N-Scale magazine. Here are items you can earn, how many entries are required for each item and how long you will have to add them to the database.
All items are in new or like-new condition and come with the original box and insert unless otherwise marked. Some items are NOS (New Old Stock) and their boxes may show signs of shelf wear.
