When in NZ on holidays in January All Gauge club member Derek Williams visited a most interesting and very active Steam Rally. Check it out.
He writes ….
When in NZ I attended a meet of the National Model Engineers held this year in Memorial Park, Tauranga for the first time since 1998. Steam locos and traction engines. Worth a look. You could acquire a kit from England for only about $6,000. Won’t go in the boot of your car though!
Regards to all, Derek.

“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.
