Plaque commemorates Charles Oliver the first Australian-born Railway Commissioner who was dismissed in 1906 following a Royal Commission into railway administration that reported adversely on him.

The plaque was unveiled at the station's centenary celebrations in 2006 by Vince Graham, the then Chief Executive Officer of RailCorp, who felt Oliver had been unfairly treated.
