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 admin@sklr.net 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.
