Foundation Members

The following is a list of the original founding members of the
Australian Model Railway Association showing the original (founding) members and their original membership numbers.

You will note that Margaret Dunlop was not originally allocated a number.
Margaret was heavily involved in the setting up of the Association and was the first
Associate (lady) member. Associate members were not allocated membership numbers. At
a much later date when Associate membership was converted into Family membership, the
existing Associate members were reallocated membership numbers from ex-members who
joined at approximately the same time. Margaret (the only founding associate) was
then allocated membership number 14.
