In 1903, a Locomotive Enginemens strike saw the railways employ "scab" labour for the duration of the strike. This photo shows the first train to arriveMaryborough with a scab crew. The crowd would no doubt be jeering the strikebreakers and a barricade can be seen on the platform, probably guarded by the local constbulatory to prevent the public approaching the locos containing the scabs.
