Yeronga Construction Underway

Good progress now being made on the new Yeronga Community Centre – our future home.

President’s Report May 2023

Dear Members,

Well, it has been very busy time since I last provided an update.

Firstly, welcome to all our new members including our youngest member, Caspian. The Club welcomes Lenore as our Club Treasurer and many thanks to Paul to will act as the Assistant Treasurer. I hope you enjoy our Club and I look forward to having a chat when you are in next.

The new club house is well under construction and we will now need to focus on the re-invigoration of the working groups so we can start planning and, where possible, prebuild the new club room layouts.

The recent Brisbane Model Railway Show was a great success. I extend my thanks to everyone who assisted in the lead up and the two days of the show. I am thankful that we are a great working team as it made it so easy. Sadly, another club suffered damage to their layout during the pack up as a vehicle ran over a section of their display. I was very impressed with our members who provided observation of our layouts and equipment as it was waiting to be loaded.

We lowered Midlands for the show and this was received well by members and the general public. It was great to see the little ones pointing out the detail of the workshops and being able to see the paddocks. As I, and others walked around to observe other clubs’ layouts, it became apparent to me that we now should put some time into our exhibition layouts.

One of the things we all have made comment on is the connections between each section. I have taken away a few ideas and will make use of two of the small sections of the Midland Inserts to demonstrate a possible fix. I also think it is timely that we make a plan for the replacement of the track with new track and a good old fashioned clean up. Of note, other Clubs have no points on the section of the layout on display. This provided smooth running of the layout with all the work and points going on behind the scenes in the fiddle yards. I will be sending an email to members with some ideas for feedback before we start any works.

The Cilo layout has not been forgotten. I have listened to some feedback and agree that there are a few possibilities for an introduction of some “point to point” shunting operations and a similar ability for a tram service in the adjoining corner section. This would provide six different running operations in the layout with two being automated and requiring no actions of an operator.

As I have the ability to tow the Club trailer, I would like to offer that we as a Club start to display our layouts at more shows. I have been asked if the Club would like to exhibit at the Gold Coast in September and at Redlands in the near future. More information to follow.

New name tags are being produced and will be given to members once they arrive.

Don’t forget our first table sale for the year will be held Sunday 30 July 23 at Belmont Rifle Range. Check the flyers for more details.

Dust off your best Club shirt and book the hair cut as we will be able to soon advise timings for the Channel Seven Flashback segment.

There is still time to send in photos of your home layout for the 2024 calendar.

I look forward to the months ahead as we draw closer to our New Club House.


Dicko, President

Red-letter day for the All Gauge MRC!

Dear Members and Friends

Truly a red-letter day for the All Gauge Model Railway Club Inc, as well as the Yeronga Community Centre and the Annerley-Stephens History Group Inc, as the first sod is turned at the building site of our future home at the old Yeronga TAFE site.

This day has been 5 years in the making, and should see the new Community Centre – which will be our permanent home – finished near the end of 2023, our 50th year! How wonderful.

We look forward to all our future collaborations, and continuing to provide craft, hobby, respite, community support, fund raising, and social engagement to our collective community.

Our thanks to Mark Bailey MP, the QLD State Government, Economic Development QLD, Dept Communities, Graham Perrett MP and Cr Nicole Johnston (our club patron) for their support throughout this process.

Dennis Remmer, VP AGMRC

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.
