This series consists of personnel files kept in the various Branches of the Tasmanian Government Railways prior to the introduction of the Service number around 1960. They largely consist of copies of materials contained on the Headquarters file. Many of the Civil and Mechanical Branch files prior to 1960 were sentenced and destroyed in 1990/1991 by Australian National Railways Commission staff. They were located at that stage in a large vault in the Civil Engineering offices at Invermay Road Launceston.
These records are part of the holdings of the Tasmanian Archive and Heritage Office.
