Missenden Railway Modellers go on line.


Recommended Posts

Have you ever wondered what goes on a Missenden Railway Modellers’ Weekend or even been tempted to book a place? The current situation with Covid 19 means that the Summer and now the Autumn gatherings have been cancelled. The organisers have therefore decided to provide a virtual Missenden experience drawing on the resources and expertise normally only available at Missenden. This means that anyone who is interested can access all the on-line content on 17th and 18th October at no charge.

 

The first online offering will include a modelling resource of tips and tricks that we have collected over the years with many contributions from current and former tutors. 

 

Much of the Missenden experience is interacting with other modellers, sharing ideas and solutions and finding new, and sometimes better, ways of resolving the difficulties that we all face.
For a few years, we published a manual of such tips and ideas and this will now be available on the website. We are also planning to extend and improve this facility.

 

In addition, there will be new content provided by current tutors and a number of our regular attendees. There will also be a number of live sessions which require booking.

There are plenty of downloadable pdfs etc and if it goes to plan (.....and its a big "if"...) the Zooms will be available after the event on the main website.

Thanks for the interest.

Didn't have time yesterday to get involved, but a quick dip into Jerry's Q&A is very interesting, so will try to watch the whole thing in due course, hopefully the links will remain active long enough!

Lots of good content on the site and I really enjoyed the live event that I signed up for.

I will be working through the recordings of the other events during the week.

 

Well done to all who organised this!

I attended the DCC, loco building and weathering sessions and was extremely pleased with how they were presented, informative and and hosted by exceptional modellers who took the time to explain things in an easy to understand format. It was very friendly and professional and cant wait to get on one of their weekends if the current situation improves. Well done everyone who put this together and thank you!
