Virtual Steam-Up

As we are all in lockdown and to take your mind off the news and COVID-19, we’re holding a Virtual Steam-Up on Wednesdays 4-6pm to discuss trains, railways, railroads, whatever! We’re trying Zoom in June.

If you’d like to join in, click here and enter the meeting ID 960 8791 6073. Email to ask for the password.

So call in 4-6pm on Wednesday.

To break the ice, let’s talk about the following themes:

  • 17th June – favourite railway
  • 24th June – favourite locomotive.

Requirements: a computer or device connected to Zoom, the internet, a microphone (most computers/devices have them built-in) and headphones so we don’t get feedback from your speakers.

The call may be recorded to see how it sounds and possibly for use as a podcast, trimmed of errs and ahs.

You can test call between 3.00-3.30pm to make sure you’re ready.

Please do not use bad language on the call (I will cut you off). I will ask you your name, where you’re calling from and how you discovered the Virtual Steam-Up as an introduction and then I’ll ask about your railway interests.

The first few will probably be a bit ropey as I get to grips with the technology and how to interview people.
