Provide meeting details
We meet at the Southampton Model Railway Society (SMRS) clubroom and also on Zoom.
Dates and details of the meetings are listed below and on the MERG diary https://www.merg.org.uk/content/events
The SMRS clubroom is Unit 1b, Kemps Quay, Quayside Road, Southampton, SO18 1BZ. Free parking is available.
Bitterne railway station is nearby and about 10 minutes walk to Kemps Quay.
Evening meetings take place on the 2nd Thursday of each month starting at 7:30pm (clubroom should be open at 7:00pm).
Workshop days normally take place on the 3rd Saturday of each month, unless we are representing MERG at an exhibition, starting at 10:00am (clubroom is usually open by 09:45am).
The club room is well equipped with several work benches, which are available on a first come first served basis, an open area with a 50“ screen that can be used for presentations and discussions, plus catering and toilet facilities.
It is situated on the first floor of an industrial unit. Access is by stairs but unfortunately there is no lift.
The meetings are flexible: You can build, test and fault find your electronic modules. Chris can assist you in developing your soldering skills. We can program the PICs used in MERG designs and have some basic test facilities for CBUS modules and DCC loco decoders and accessories. Presentations are welcome, and advice, guidance, tea, coffee and biscuits are always available.
We are currently rebuilding an 009 exhibition layout to enhance its operational capabilities and possibly add some animations.
The layout is being controlled by MERG CBUS and DCC modules. It will be controlled using route selection from a single control panel and one or two CANCABs will be used for loco control.
