30th Anniversary

THE THIRTIETH ANNIVERSARY OF THE FORMATION OF W.A.M.R.C. (INC)

Those members of the Club who came to the Clubrooms on 10th June 1987 celebrated 30 years of the existence of the West Australian Model Railway Club (Inc.) with several bottles of champagne and other goodies – indeed little work was done that night on the new layout and that which was done is highly suspect!

The original Minute Book of the Club was on display as well as other early documents such as attendance registers, cash books, etc. A list of present members and their date of joining was presented and is reproduced here.
