Introduction to CBUS - weekend course

27-29th March 2021 (Rushden)

By popular demand, we have arranged another weekend course for those who want to learn about CBUS.

This date replaces that originally scheduled for March 2020, and all bookings for that course will be honoured for this one.

The course will take place in the “Goods Shed” meeting room at the Rushden Transport Museum & Railway, Rushden Station, Northamptonshire.

For those just starting out in CBUS, this weekend course will take you from first principles through building CBUS kits to setting up CBUS operations.

The course takes place over the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) with an optional extra workshop day on the Monday, to apply what was learnt over the weekend. The course will start with arrivals from 4pm on Friday evening.

We also have an optional follow-on practical workshop day on Monday 29th March. This will be a practical workshop day for you to apply the knowledge learnt over the weekend. You can work on whatever you wish, with assistance from the tutors, such as building and setting up CBUS modules.

This course assumes no previous knowledge of CBUS.

Topics covered will include:

  • Introduction to CBUS principles
  • CBUS theory and practice - use with DC or DCC
  • The various CBUS modules that are available – including latest designs
