Skills Transfer Days 2016/7
One of The MRC’s aims is to ensure that modelling skills are passed on to the next generation. It’s perhaps easy for experienced modellers to forget how daunting it was to take some of those key steps in developing techniques, and all too easy for the less experienced to put something in the ‘too difficult’ category.
So we’re continuing our series of ‘skills transfer’ days, to allow a small group of people to try out something they may not have tried before with more experienced modellers on hand to help them. During the day each attendee will work on the kit/parts supplied to learn the techniques and hopefully take home a working model. These courses have been running succesfully since 2009, and have been popular with positive feedback. Space is limited on each course, so please book early.
We're pleased to confirm the following dates:
The September/October 2016 edition of The Bulletin is on its way to members, featuring a range of interesting articles all written by members, including:
- Andrew David previews his November lecture at Keen House, exploring the connection between the Great Central Railway and Quintinshill
- Ian Lamb writes about the Borders Railway
- Three book reviews
- Reminiscences of the prototype
- A description of the G-scale railway in a restaurant, built by MRC members
- And updates from around the MRC, including news on Skills Transfer Days.
The Bulletin is a bi-monthly publication sent to all members of The Club - new members are welcome.
