From the President of All Gauge

August-September have been very busy show months for All Gauge.

Firstly we had the very successful August Table Sale, the first for 2018, in which some 30+ sellers took tables to sell model railway equipment to our members and the public at large.

This was followed by the Club’s Open Day, where over 200 members of the public paid to enter our first show day since the Club vacated the old Clubhouse at the Clem Jones Centre. Some 10 layouts, all but one belonging to the Club or to members,  were on show and operational. Thomas was as usual a great attraction to the many children who came to the show. Both functions also featured our traditional BBQ; as usual, a sell-out.

Our most recent public function (and our last for 2018) was our September Table Sale, and it was our biggest ever! All our functions have been held at the Carina PCYC, where we have been made very, very welcome. We plan to use this venue in our upcoming events in 2019. Watch this space for calendar updates.

All Gauge would like to thank the Brisbane City Council and our Patron, Councillor Ryan Murphy of Doboy Ward, for support in running our 2018 functions by granting us funds from the Lord Mayor’s Suburban Initiative Fund.

Barry Chiswell, President.

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.
