Club Honoured by Patron in its 40th Year


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. AGMRC Club President Ron Parker was presented with the official Brisbane City Flag. On behalf of all Members, thank you to Councillor Murphy, and here’s to another 40 great years!

The History of the All Gauge Model Railway Club

“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.
