The latest version of the database listing any Caledonian Railway staff identified through research has now been uploaded to the website - now containing 17,350 entries.
This big increase from the previous version mainly due to a new member who was doing his own Family Research around Fauldhouse in West Lothian, who passed on research from the Valuation Rolls. Previously we had used these to identify the Station Master living at stations but this further research identified that the Caledonian Railway owned considerable rentable property, which is quite extensive in places such as Motherwell, Carstairs, Coatbridge, etc. including all Railway trades as well as Drivers and Fireman and Guards. This chance discovery led to over 1,000 additional entries to our list - which can downloaded from the Staff Records page.
The Valuation Rolls can be found on the Scotlands People website - enter "Caledonian Railway" in Valuation Rolls to list all the Property owned by the Company.
