Join now at a greatly reduced-price!!!

While the All Gauge Model Railway Club was without a clubhouse a membership half-rate of $60 applied. However we now have a temporary new home at Yeerongpilly Green at 21 Queens Way in Yeerongpilly so the full membership rate will be reintroduced from January 2022. So if you are thinking of becoming a new member, or would like to return to the club, join now while the lower rate applies! Even better, because we charge membership on a pro-rata basis, for the remainder of 2021 (Oct – Dec) we would only charge you $15!

AGMRC 2021 Table Sale in November

When: Sunday 28th November

Where: Queensland Rifle Association (QRA) Restaurant, 1485 Old Cleveland Rd, Belmont (click here for a map link). It’s covered, spacious and airy.

Parking: Lots of free Parking.

The Table Sales Team (Ron Parker, Alf Petralia, David Austin, Ted Waugh, Neil Bromley) met when we were advised that the PCYC is to operate as a gymnasium and no longer take bookings for large events.

The QRA Restaurant was selected based on:

  • Peter Doig’s QRA list of dates available.
  • Clubs who have publicly advised when they are holding events.
  • The 2021 School Holidays.
  • The 2021 Queensland Public Holidays. 

The AGMRC committee has approved this event.

The Table Sales Team decided to hold the table Sale well in the future, hoping that Covid will become less problematic and believing that it will be easier to simply cancel a planned event rather than urgently create one.

The booking also includes time on the Saturday prior, for the Table Sales Team, the Club Committee and AGMRC members to set up the 60+ tables the Team now have on site.

Moving our tables from the PCYC to the QRA was quick and easy thanks to Ted Waugh (a recent new club member) who provided his vehicle, Neil Bromley (club member and a TableSaler) for helping load and unload and repairing our tables trolley and Alf, David, Peter Diog and Ron who helped with loading, moving, storing.

Thanks to the Table Salers and Friends of the All Gauge who have stayed in contact with us during the Covid months; patiently standing by for further info.  We know who you are.  Thanks.

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.
