Due to ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, and the associated State & Federal Government laws, health directives and recommendations (click here for the latest information from the QLD Government), all events scheduled on the All Gauge calendar are subject to late change or cancellation; and in particular our public events such as table sales, train shows, and open days.
Any such notifications will appear here and on our Facebook page, as well as being sent to our members. If you have enquiries regarding All Gauge please use these contact details and contact form.
I would like to introduce myself as your newly elected Club President for 2023. My name is Kragg Dixon but please, call me Dicko. I would like to begin by offering my sincere thanks to the outgoing committee for their fantastic work and their dedication to model railway. They have handed over the club in a very good position for 2023. I extend a warm welcome to all members.
The Club is seeking a member to become the Treasurer for 2023. It is essential to the successful running of our club that we fill this position ASAP. If you are interested in stepping into this role please contact the Secretary or myself. No experience necessary and help is on hand.
In our 50th year, we as a club are planning to celebrate by moving into our soon to be built club room within the Yeronga Community Centre. This will involve building new layouts and establishing a member’s workshop area. Exciting times ahead! We will also be engaging with Channel Seven to run a “Flashback” segment to show our humble beginnings and the eagerly awaited new club room. If you have any old footage or photos that you would be happy to share, please let me know.
We are currently planning for the 2023 Brisbane Model Railway Show being held the weekend of 6-7 May, followed by the first table sale of the year on Sunday 30 July. More information will follow on these and other important dates so please keep an eye out for emails and this website. I will also add activities to the calendar in the club.
We are currently trialling an extra opportunity for members to run their models on a Thursdaynight. Big thank you to Paul who has offered to facilitate this between 6.00pm – 9.00pm. Please feel free to pop in and make the most of the air-conditioned room during this hot period.
If you would like the opportunity to have your layout appear in our 2024 calendar, please upload some photos to Google Drive so they can be considered for publishing. If you are like me and need some help setting this up, please let me know and I’ll organise some assistance.
I look forward to chatting with you and working together as we celebrate our 50th year and plan for the future.
Truly a red-letter day for the All Gauge Model Railway Club Inc, as well as the Yeronga Community Centre and the Annerley-Stephens History Group Inc, as the first sod is turned at the building site of our future home at the old Yeronga TAFE site.
This day has been 5 years in the making, and should see the new Community Centre – which will be our permanent home – finished near the end of 2023, our 50th year! How wonderful.
We look forward to all our future collaborations, and continuing to provide craft, hobby, respite, community support, fund raising, and social engagement to our collective community.
Our thanks to Mark Bailey MP, the QLD State Government, Economic Development QLD, Dept Communities, Graham Perrett MP and Cr Nicole Johnston (our club patron) for their support throughout this process.
“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.
