Congrats to the upcoming winners !!

The NELSTS was a huge success and plans are already underway to hold the show again in 2024.

The NELSTS Raffle winning numbers have been posted at There are still 6 unclaimed raffle items listed so check your tickets.

Thanks to all for participating and making this a successful event.


It was fun, but I was bummed that I lost my first set of coupons. I did put my name and number on the drop coupons, that’s why I kept asking for the name when you were drawing!

Every bucket I put a ticket in was won/claimed except the crossing shanty kit. If you still have the winning ticket for that one, take a look at the back.

I put mine in the revo and Evans boxcar, but didn’t win either. Still a good cause.


Alas the winner of the Shanty just contacted us.

My chance @ winning any of raffle prizes has been just as lucky as winning the Mega-Millions prize ! :disappointed:

Yeah, bummer Jon. My empathies.

I flooded the bucket for the TCS sound decoder, figuring a sure win… not…

So when it was announced that the show turned out to be a great success, I thought “Yeah, I sure did MY bit!!” :grin: :crazy_face:

I struck out on the Raffle but so glad I attended the banquet as I won one of the door prizes - a really nice Shiloh brass signal.
