c. 1926 - 1989


The Eveleigh Railway Workshops manufactured the first steam locomotives made in Australia and were one of the largest employers in Sydney. In 1926 the Labor Council of New South Wales drafted the original Constitution for Shop Committees in railway workshops and shop Committees were formed in Eveleigh, Chullora and Enfield. The delegates to the Eveleigh Loco Workshop Shop Committee were elected by each Section of the Workshop. The Eveleigh Loco Central Shop Committee was formed in this period while the Eveleigh carriage shop started with a committee at a slightly later period. The shop committees in Eveleigh Workshops produced their own publications including Eveleigh News. The Eveleigh Railway Workshops were closed in 1989.
