Rules

The competition is organised and sponsored by Peter’s Railway. Entry to the competition is free of charge, is open to persons aged 14 and under on the 30th September 2015, and who are full time resident in the UK.
An adult is required to approve the entry to the competition on behalf of the entrant. The adult may be the child’s parent, guardian or teacher.
Only one Quiz Sheet per child per site. Repeat visits to a site will not add to your score. The site (railway or museum etc.) must have been visited.
If several children wish to enter as a group, the person named on the entry sheet will be awarded the points (and the prize money).
Quiz sheets will be collated using the Entrant’s name and contact email address, so please make sure this is super-readable.
Email addresses can be used for occasional Peter’s Railway communication and may be given to the railway that you visited. They will not be sold or passed on to anyone else for any reason.
Entries received after the 30th September will not be counted. Winners will be notified by email within 7 days. If there is no response to the winner’s notification email after 10 days, the prize will be re-allocated to the next highest score. In the event of a tie, the winner will be determined by a draw.
Peter’s Railway is not liable for lost entries and reserves the right to disqualify any entry. The decision of Peter’s Railway is final.
