The roll commemorates Substation Staff of the New South Wales Government Tramways who served in World War One. The roll was originally unveiled in 1916 with additional names being added at a later date. 

A roll of honor containing the names of members of the sub-station staff, New South Wales tramways, who have enlisted to date, has been unveiled at the Central railway station, Eddy Avenue sub-station. The board is a handsome piece of work made of Queensland maple. Forty-two names are inscribed on the roll of honor, which represents 39 per cent, of the whole of the staff.
