Formatted abstract
The workshops were more than just a place for work. Workers participated together in a range of social and cultural activities that broadened not only their knowledge and interests but also added to the camaraderie and sense of community at the workshops. This paper explores some of these social and cultural activities such as the Queensland Railway Institute, the Railway Bond and educational lectures and talks for the employees. There were a number of other organisations that were port of the Ipswich Railway Workshops culture and included the Queensland Railway Ambulance Corp and the Southern and Western Fire Brigade. Many of these activities in turn directly influenced social and cultural activities in the wider community.
