Thanks for posting those duty rosters, I consider them as the family tree of Nine Elms. Those names brought back some memories thatís for sure!

When I used to prepare the name slips I used to print the names in capitals until we were given the use of an old Imperial manual typewriter and then I used that as it was better for producing copies using carbon paper. Three sets of name slips had to be printed, one for the list clerk, one for posting in the notice case room and one for the wages/time clerk.
How Jim Evans came across this slip I don't know, just before the depot closed a large amount of such records were simply destroyed, although George and I held onto some items for personal nostalgic reasons. Hard to appreciate that this July 2012 the depot will have been gone for 45 years although I can remember working there so clearly.
Phil Bassett has been kind enough to send us some images of roster lists:
