What needed to be done?
How do you go about marking the retirement of a building which has given over 90 years of hard work servicing trains? Aurizon wanted to create something unique that celebrated the architectural brilliance, atmosphere and memories of the Rockhampton Roundhouse. It was a bittersweet moment as the old Roundhouse’s retirement meant a lot of workers would have to say goodbye as well. But rather than it being a sad experience, Aurizon wanted to celebrate its amazing history.
What we did
We created a beautiful, hard cover commemorative book celebrating the Roundhouse itself and every employee who has ever been a part of it. From the details of its construction and effects on the rail industry to stories from the people who worked there over the years, the book was about celebrating the history of the Roundhouse.
The Rockhampton Roundhouse Heritage Book became more than just a commemorative book for staff members, several copies now have a permanent home at both the Queensland Museum Library and the State Library of Queensland.
