November 28 Virtual Meet - London Area Chain (unofficial; volunteer-hosted)
As per ongoing discussion about what to do now that the London meet for November 28 has been cancelled due to the ongoing pandemic, I have proposed a chain to replace the physical event.

With a total of 34 panels available, this will be one of the more ambitious hosting projects that I have seen so far. All simulations are however payware. Please submit this form with your times and simulators available for planning purposes: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSemCgDiF3ylCB6UOZTclQtGjs71VpY4MOyUSD22aqxceyF80Q/viewform Final plans to be made closer to the event; hosting of all 5 sims subject to host availability.

Perfect running or at least no trackside failures with some delays and disturbances to individual trains are recommended by more experienced hosts, so that approach is the idea, with specific issues to be communicated and organized between the hosts of the sessions.

Included simulations:
London Bridge
9 panels
Chains to: Victoria Central, Victoria South Eastern, Three Bridges

Three Bridges
9 panels, 8 major, 1 simple
Chains to: London Bridge, Victoria Central

Victoria Central
5 panels
Chains to: London Bridge, Three Bridges, Victoria South Eastern

Victoria South Eastern
5 panels
Chains to: London Bridge, Victoria Central, West Hampstead

West Hampstead
4 panels
ARS Not Available
Chains to: Victoria South Eastern

There will be a lot of work to do, with the aim of running the 2009 Groundhog Day timetable that is available with a 04:45 start on all sims, including West Hampstead, although there a separate timetable download is needed from the website.

Planned time is from 12, noon, to 18, as the physical event was meant to be!

Let's see if we can't get this to kick off, shall we?

For planning purposes, I would like everyone signing up, also those who do so tentatively, to state which of the involved simulations they have.
24/11/2020 at 18:18
TBASC only
24/11/2020 at 18:33
I am throwing my hat into the ring for at least some of the session and have all sims.
24/11/2020 at 18:47
I only have London Bridge

I have all the sims but probably only the stamina for 3 hours or so.
24/11/2020 at 22:07
And here's a nice form to record things like times: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSemCgDiF3ylCB6UOZTclQtGjs71VpY4MOyUSD22aqxceyF80Q/viewform This way we can more easily see when people are available without having to ask everyone to do more than fill out this. So please fill this form out when you can.
25/11/2020 at 17:24
Both Victoria sims and Three Bridges.
25/11/2020 at 23:51
Have signed up on the form, and am also available to host any of the listed sims.
26/11/2020 at 08:40
If you still plan to join the day but haven't yet done so, please complete the form so that we know how many signallers we'll have.

Please tell us of your availability by Friday morning if possible (panels will still be available on the day but it might take us a bit longer to find you one!)

On Friday afternoon we'll announce which sim we would like you to connect to. Hosts may rotate the signallers on their panels every hour to keep things mixed up.

I have signed up via the form, intend to be available throughout... Said on the form no preference but actually would prefer 3 Bridges or L Bridge.
26/11/2020 at 15:40
Strange, that doesn't seem to have gone through when I look at the responses... Could you try again?
27/11/2020 at 12:11
Sorry for the late sign up, night shifts make you late. But if there is still space I've filled out the form with my avalibility
