Family teams of a Junior Engineer and a parent as Coach may run the four trains around the four loops using a hand-held wireless controller in a race against the clock. Up to 60 family teams can participate in one of three age-related divisions. The winner and runner-up of each division will receive hobby-related prizes, and all contestants will receive a ribbon.  A Lionel train set valued at $200 provided by the LCCA will be presented to the championship team.
