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.
Fellow Members and Friends of All Gauge Model Railway Club
I hope you are all well.
Here are some updates on things going on in our club.
Firstly, note that we have our next Table Sale coming up next month on 31st July – see below on this page for full details. Our Table Sales are always wonderful events, so we hope to see you there.
We have started plans for the brand new layouts at our future clubhouse. It is a fantastic opportunity to take advantage of new technology, modelling and construction techniques, and cater for a wide range of model trains; including “high speed” trains that have become increasingly popular with young and old. Be part of our renewed growth and the chance to be involved in completely new large-scale layout builds.
We have been asked by Redland Model Railway Club if we could display at their show this year. At the members meeting recently it was decided that we should attend. We have also been asked by the Annerley Junction Fest organisers if we could display at this year’s event since we were very well received at the 2021 Fest. For both of these events I have offered to display my own layout on behalf of the club as it is lightweight, easily transportable, and easily assembled. I will be happy to do so.
I am also taking the opportunity to rejuvenate some N gauge models left over from our last club, and I have taken the opportunity to tidy up the wiring of “Cylo” to make it easier to transport.
If you’d like to know more about our club, think about joining us and being part of our move towards our new home at Yeronga – now only 18 months away (and it will be in our 50th year!). Our temporary clubhouse is now operating at Yeerongpilly Green, so pop in and say hi.
“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.
