FAMILY HISTORY

We do not hold many staff records yet, but are able to point enquirers in the right direction to research their railway families. We do have a cd detailing names, jobs and companies plus several company magazines, like the Great Western Magazine, which give reports of staff movements and promotions plus good detail of what happened to staff during World War I.

We are busy compiling a datebase of names of people who worked on the railway in Newton Abbot.  This includes detail of where they lived when available and will, when completed, also show details of their families.

For Newton Abbot based staff the Town & GWR Museum has an oral archive.
