The Queensland Railway Employees records are an index to the employees of the Queensland Railways between 1889 and 1940. The records track the career of approximately 370,000 people covering the entire career of many railway employees. It gives the name, position, branch/office, and railway/division for each person employed in the railway service in Queensland. For those listed after 1889, it also gives age.

Listing 1,020 entries, it names people not mentioned in the Queensland Government Gazette indexes and gives the reasons for the appointment/removal - information we can't often find out.
