The Toolroom at Islington Railway Workshops where George Russell did his apprenticeship during WW2 and worked until retirement in 1971. A Bunnings Hardware store is currently located on this site on Churchill Road. Below is a map of the railway workshops and an aerial view showing the Toolroom near the south-eastern corner of the works.
