    Posted 28 December 2018 - 15:20 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 EMGS.

    This event is being organised by the various area groups in Scotland and the Borders of the EM Gauge Society and the Scalefour Society and . Entry is free, but donations are encouraged. Disabled access is available.
    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.
    Teas and coffees will be available. For lunch, a wide variety of hostelries and cafes is close at hand.
    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.
    A wide variety of accommodation 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.
