4th-6th September 2021 (Rushden)
(Postponed from 2020)
The course will take place in the “Goods Shed” meeting room at the Rushden Transport Museum & Railway, Rushden Station, Northamptonshire.
This is part 2 of our three JMRI courses, also referred to as “More JMRI”.
Any bookings for our 2020 course that we were not able to run at Rushden, will be honoured for this course in 2021. If you already have such a booking, you will be contacted by email with latest updates. This course is now scheduled after the date when the government hopes to have lifted all restrictions, so we are all hoping we can run the course then, and look forward to welcoming you back at face to face courses.
The course will run over the weekend with arrivals from 4pm on Friday afternoon to about 5pm on Sunday afternoon.
In addition to the weekend course, there is an optional follow-on practical workshop day on the Monday. This day will be purely a practical workshop session for you to apply the knowledge learnt over the weekend, with the assistance of the tutors. If you have your own layout hardware that you want to work on with JMRI, we can also assist with that on the Monday
This course will take you through train detection and identification, entry exit routing and signalling using signal mast logic.
This is a weekend course for those already familiar and competent with the basics of JMRI.
