Caledonian Railway Staff List - updated February 2021

The latest version of the  database listing any Caledonian Railway staff identified through research has now been uploaded to the website - now containing over 22,000 entries.

This is another significant increase from the 17,000 records in the version uploaded in January 2021, and is driven by further 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 has resulted in a significant number of additional entries to our list - which can downloaded from the Staff Records page.

The Valuation Rolls can be found on the Scotland's People website - enter "Caledonian Railway" in Valuation Rolls to list all the Property owned by the Company.
