    We are pleased to announce that the EM Gauge Society and the Scalefour Society are holding another 'Skills Day' event. This is the first one to take place in this region and builds on the successful formula of an informal, informative gathering of modellers. The emphasis is on 'showing and telling' with about 20 demonstration stands. Entry is free, but donations are encouraged. Teas and coffees will be available. A wide variety of hostelries and cafes are close

    This event is being organised by the various area groups in the South and South West of England of the EM Gauge Society and the Scalefour Society /. The Civic Hall is wheelchair accessible
    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.
    Didcot is a famous railway town with Didcot Parkway Railway Station being within walking distance of the Civic Hall. Even in March, for a weekend break the area has much to offer railway enthusiasts, Didcot Railway Centre is within walking distance while Pendon Museum at Long Wittenham is only a couple of miles distant.
    As ever, the emphasis will be on 'showing and telling' and so will feature around eighteen experienced modellers demonstrating a wide range of skills and a variety of innovative techniques. All this will be supported by an expected total of six quality layouts to inspire you and illustrate some of these methods in practice.
    The EMGS Test Track will be in attendance and will be situated adjacent to Tim Venton's stand.
