President’s Report – December 2018

The traditional All Gauge Christmas Party, as usual, wrapped up the meeting year for 2018. Some 30+ attendees made it great night, capped by spectacular desserts. Once again we thank our Patron, Ryan Murphy, for his supporting grant through the Brisbane City Council.

Without a clubhouse, it might have been expected that 2018 would have been a difficult, and perhaps a disappointing year. This has not been the case. Dedicated membership has been retained, and enthusiastic support for all Club activities has been much in evidence.

The Carina PCYC has been our home away from home for the year, and is set to remain so until we achieve our dream of a clubhouse. We owe a great debt of gratitude to David Beard of the PCYC for his friendly and welcoming attitude towards us.

Hopefully the clubhouse dream may not be only that, as through the great work done by Dennis Remmer, the possibility of the Club being re-sited to the new State Government development at the old Yeronga TAFE premises is looking extremely promising. 2020-21 could be very good years for us.

During this year, while we have been without our clubhouse, members have still been able to run their trains at the homes of various members. Small groups have met regularly, and certain members have made the homes available for running to all members at certain advertised times.

A Happy Christmas, and a great New Year to all our model railway operators and friends.

Barry Chiswell; President AGMRC.

Presidents Report – October 2018

After the flurry of activity of two Table Sales and a Public Show Day, we’re entering a quiet period, however All Gauge is still moving forward.

The well-attended October members meeting at the Carina PCYC enthusiastically welcomed the news that the Club is pursuing good options for its future home. At this stage we are looking at 2020 as the timeframe for new permanent premises, but until then we continue to partner with the Carina PCYC to hold our events program and member functions. We will announce more soon on our future plans.

Some photos from recent events are here  https://photos.app.goo.gl/MDrC9RtJMyw1yGLp9 and here https://photos.app.goo.gl/9meqNM83a2NGAGdp9 .

Members continue to run their non-DCC locos on our Midlands layout on Wednesdays at Jack Hallam’s home from 8am until noon, and DCC locos on the Bodmin Road layout at David Austin’s place on Fridays 6-9pm. Our next (and last for 2018) Members meeting will be held at the Carina PCYC hall at 1pm on Saturday 24 November. However, this is not our last function for 2018, as our annual Christmas Party will be held on Friday 7 December at the Carina PCYC hall.

We welcome any membership enquiries for 2019. Please email enquiry@allgauge.org.au for more information.

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.
