ALL GAUGE MODEL RAILWAY CLUB, ZAHEL STREET, CARINA.
Part of the Clem Jones Sports Centre.
Our two-storey clubhouse is in the swimming pool car park at the Adelaide Street end of Zahel Street.
Club member and AGMRC website creator Dennis Remmer gave our recent Member’s Meeting an interesting report on our Website’s statistics.
Leading up to our recent Train Show Weekend the website had nearly 1,000 hits from about 400 visitors.
This activity can be attributed to having our website publicized on the train show posters, flyers, and press; as well as through emails and link sharing.
Total hits on our site so far this year are over 8000, from more than 2500 visitors.
In 2014, total hits were over 10000 from nearly 3400 visitors.
We predict exceeding 15000 visits for 2015!
Club member and website creator Dennis Remmer has just loaded two more videos and dozens of photos taken just before opening time at our recent Train Show Weekend.

However … Dennis still wants lots more photos, videos, stories … about your home layout … your favourite model … which era you model … Interesting sites you have visited … etc.
And what about Column three on this website page?
Are there any other model train manufacturers that you would like him to invite to join this info column?
Send them to dennis.
Our members come to the clubhouse with their trains on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Saturdays from 9am to 1pm and Fridays from 7pm to 9pm.

At the recent AGM (held 13th March 2015 – our 40th!) our club was honoured by its patron Ryan Murphy, Councillor for Doboy Ward, Brisbane City Council.

“Some of the founding and future members of AGMRC were model railway enthusiasts, members of other hobby groups and model railway clubs, long before the nucleus of All Gauge was formed in 1973 ….”
The author of our history is Peter Lamb, a long-term AGMRC member who first joined in 1978. Much of this history is from his first-hand memories and experiences from before, during and returning to the club.
