Meet the Modeller

The heart of the Railway Modellers Meet is you & what you are doing in the hobby!
Zoom, Meet the Modeller, June 4th from 7 to 9:30

The Virtual Railway Modellers Meet is hosting a virtual display room and Meet the Modeller evening. We expect it will be a fun opportunity to hear what other modellers are doing, talk about their projects and maybe pick up an idea or two. Everyone is invited to participate. All it takes is providing the display coordinator with the information described in the submission form (below) and good quality photographs of a model railway hobby project. You don’t need to be a craftsman or even a builder to participate. We welcome all levels of model railway activity, including:
  • models (finished or in progress) – locomotives and rolling stock, structures, dioramas, vehicles, etc.
  • If you are a photographer, your railway photos (hobby or prototype), are welcome.
  • As are displays showing unusual methods and techniques, electronic circuits or other new tech.
  • If you are doing research, or planning a layout, feel free to share information on that too.
Basically, if it’s part of the hobby, we’re interested to see what you are working on.
If you are working on a project with a group of modellers, please let us know so we can make sure you are all included.
As submissions are sent in, the Display Coordinator will put them into a PowerPoint presentation.
The virtual meet the modeller event will occur through a Zoom meeting. Our moderator will open up the power point presentation, and chat with each participant, creating an opportunity for you to say a little bit about what interests you, what inspired the project you are working on, how you have gone about it and anything else you think other folks would be interested to learn.
These conversations are intended to be informal, relaxed and spontaneous. There is no need to prepare speaking notes. There normally isn’t enough time to go into a lot of detail. But you will be able to introduce yourself, speak about your project and - who knows – maybe even be able to continue the conversation afterword with folks who share your interest.
Our only limitation is time. We are setting aside two hours. The moderator will be watching to ensure we are able to get to everyone’s project during that time.

During the Zoom meeting, we want to ensure a good experience for everyone. We ask two things during the meeting:
  1. find a quiet space, where other people or noises will not interrupt or be heard by the rest of us, and
  2. place your computer onto a safe, stable surface (like a table or desk, not on your lap). That will ensure you don’t look like a boxer, bobbing and weaving in and out of view while we are chatting.
