Like every other line throughout the country, the Dursley branch had
its share of local characters, without whom the line would have been a
much poorer place. Looking back it is amazing just how many staff were
needed one on one short line, with just three stations, to keep everything
running smoothly and efficiently. The range of jobs was wide; stationmaster,
porter, clerk, guard, signalman, driver, fireman, carter - the list goes
on. Each had their part to play and each depended on the others to help
keep the operation going.
