    Have you ever wondered what goes on a Missenden Railway Modellers’ Weekend or even been tempted to book a place? The current situation with Covid means that the Summer and now the Autumn gatherings have been cancelled. The organisers have therefore decided to provide a virtual Missenden experience drawing on the resources and expertise normally only available at Missenden. This means that anyone who is interested can access all the on-line content on 17th and 18th October at no charge.

    The first online offering will include a modelling resource of tips and tricks that we have collected over the years with many contributions from current and former tutors.

    Much of the Missenden experience is interacting with other modellers, sharing ideas and solutions and finding new, and sometimes better, ways of resolving the difficulties that we all face.
    For a few years, we published a manual of such tips and ideas and this will now be available on the website. We are also planning to extend and improve this facility.

    In addition, there will be new content provided by current tutors and a number of our regular attendees. There will also be a number of live sessions which require booking.

    The main Missenden Home Page is here:

    And the event page is here:

    Great idea. Will there be recordings available afterwards?

    The plan is certainly to record the sessions and make them available after the event.

    Ian Rathbones video on lining coaches loses the picture halfway through.

    We thought it may be browser related but it looks a little more complex. We'll fix it but it may take a while.
