President’s Notes – May 2019

The Queensland Branch of the Australian Model Railway Association (AMRA) held its 42nd annual show at the Brisbane Exhibition Grounds on Saturday and Sunday 4 & 5 of May. All Gauge as in many previous years was in attendance, with this year two layouts to exhibit.

Public attendance at the show was very good, and our members voted the exhibition hall the best facility that they could remember. Click the Gallery link above to find some great pictures from the event.

Interest in both of our layouts was high, and children, in particular, found  the computer controlled DCC layout fascinating, while many adults showed much interest in the high standard of modelling associated with the large “Midlands” layout.

Upcoming functions for the Club are:

  1. Members meeting at the Carina PCYC Hall at 1pm Saturday 18 May.
  2. The second club Table Sale for 2019 at the Carina PCYC Hall Sunday 7 July.
  3. A layout exhibition at the Yeronga Community Centre 10am – 2pm on Sunday 14 July.
