There is no decoration or inscription.The memorial is located near platform 23.

Additional information by Sydney Trains:

It is now known that this honour roll was produced by the Operations staff. A triptych Honour Roll board, with 100 Operations railways employees names who served in WWI written on paper in ink, and accompanied by their Railway Branches, and mounted in a large wooden picture frame behind a glass pane.

The triptych originally had left and right wings attached, that contained the names of those who were wounded or gave their lives in WWI, but these were removed in 2014 due to their deteriorating paintwork and are currently undergoing conservation.

The central panel is currently fixed to the western Railway Remembrance Wall at Central Station.
