    EMGS Announcement

     

    The 6th Chris Kedgley Memorial Skills Day – Saturday March 9th 2019

     

    We are pleased to announce that the EM Gauge Society and the Scalefour Society are holding in March 2019 another Skills Day event. This is the first one to take place in Scotland and builds on the successful formula of an informal, informative gathering of modellers.  As in previous years, the EMGS involvement is again being funded by the bequest of Chris Kedgley, former Chairman of the EM Gauge Society and active member of the Scalefour Society who passed away in June 2013.

    Linlithgow is an attractive historic town on the Lochside, almost midway between Glasgow and Edinburgh, with good access from all directions. The M9 serves the town. Four electric trains an hour run from Edinburgh, two an hour from Glasgow.  The Low Port centre is across the road from the station. Even in March, for a weekend break the area has much to offer, from Linlithgow Palace, the three Forth Bridges and the Kelpies to the Falkirk Wheel, not to mention the convenient cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow and Stirling.

    As ever, the emphasis will be on showing and telling. So, the Skills Day 2019 in Linlithgow will feature a dozen experienced modellers demonstrating a wide range of skills together with innovative ideas and four layouts will show some of these in practice.

    Date: Saturday March 9th 2019

    Location: Low Port Centre, 1 Blackness Road, Linlithgow, West Lothian, EH49 7HZ
    Web: https://activewestlothian.com/active-outdoors/low-port-centre

    Opening Times:          10.00am to 4.30pm

    Cost:               Entry is free, but donations are encouraged.

    Catering:         Teas and coffees will be available. For lunch, a wide variety of hostelries and cafes is close at hand.

    Demonstrations mix innovative techniques with new slants on established skills, and will cover: innovative turntable operation, mechatronics (the integration of electronics and mechanisms), loco chassis construction, ‘stay-alive’ enhancements for DCC locos, modelling rock formations, weathering stone and other materials, controlling servo points, plastic card modelling with the Silhouette cutter, 3D printing, carriage lighting.

    Layouts:

    • Wharfeside (EM) – layout under construction. See how the baseboards and track were built, as well as CSB chassis locos performing their magic.
    • Union Mills (P4) – a finished small scenic layout, which welcomes visiting locomotives
    • Kettlewell (P4) – a scenic model with prototypical operation in two eras, featuring an innovative fiddle yard and mechanical interlocking of turnouts and signals
    • Cadhay Sidings (P4) – part of this Southern Railway layout which demonstrates the use of digital systems for realistic block instruments and realistic signalling.
    • Castle Caereinion (009) – a different gauge illustrating scenic techniques

    Disabled access: available

    Accommodation:  A wide variety at all price ranges is available. If researching on the web, look for the adjacent Falkirk as well as Linlithgow, or Queensferry on the River Forth.

    This event is being organised by the various area groups in Scotland and the Borders of the EM Gauge Society and the Scalefour Society www.emgs.org and scalefour.org
