The role of Railway Station Master had a much more distinguished position in the local community in this era than it had since the mid-twentieth century. In an era of poor road conditions and fewer motorists, the railway station was the main transport and communication hub. Mr Young, the Sunnybank station master, had a bush house of beautiful ferns and orchids, many of which were used to beautify the station. Two Book Pines had been planted on each end of the station in 1910 (?) to commemorate the crowning of King George V and Queen Mary.
