How do you meet?

Provide meeting details

Whilst restrictions are in place, we are using Messenger video calls.

Previously, meetings were held around once a month at West Calder Community Centre. January (AGM), April, July and October.

These are more formal than the workshops but still remain a relaxed and inviting affair.

Here we can listen to down to earth talks on key parts of electronics in model railway layouts from people who really know their stuff.

It is a chance to quiz these people too and present our own experiences without fear of ridicule or embarrassment. They are experts for a reason - probably because as we are all experiencing going down the same journey - it is just that some have spend longer than others on that journey and are at different stations down the line.

Workshops are held around once a month 10:30 to 15:30.

We normally start with a coffee as everyone arrives and then chat through the aims of the day and who will do what and who will supervise and assist when needed.

Lunch does happen but the timing depends on what each of us is up to. But it is a good time to talk through issues you may be having with your home layout. No over-bearing advice - just friendly options.

And the Next Meeting?

How do Video Calls Work?

The calls last about an hour. To participate, members need a mobile phone, tablet or a PC / Mac with a camera and microphone.

Calls are scheduled in advance and are held on the last Saturday/Sunday of the month sometime both days depending on the subjects. Topics are agreed in advance with any suggestion more than welcome.
