Part of the Railway Remembrance Wall. A light-coloured, polished wooden board decorated at the top with a crown, the Union Jack and the Australian Flag, with a laurel wreath encircling the Roll of Honour banner.

"Lest We Forget" is written beneath the crossed flags. Names are in white against a darker background behind glass panes.The memorial is located near platform 23.

Additional information by Sydney Trains:  

A very large polished wooden Roll of Honour board, with 452 Eveleigh Locoworks railways employees names who served in WWI written in white in nine columns, and behind three glass panes.

It was decorated with a crown and Union Jack and Australian flags and the words 'Lest We Forget' above, and a laurel wreath encircling the Roll of Honour banner.

It was produced by Eveleigh Locoworks staff after the WWII Honour Roll was unveiled, apparently to consolidate the names on various Locoworkshops Honour Rolls, and it was unveiled by Works Manager AC Bell at Eveleigh on 10 November 1964.

After the closure of the Locoworks in 1989, it was relocated and fixed to the eastern Railway Remembrance Wall at Central Station.
