During September 2004 the webmaster  received an email from a Mr Alan Reynolds who was one of many Stationmasters at Pemberton, offering some pictures he had of the station area.

Alan Reynolds was Stationmaster Pemberton from October 1964 to Dec. 1977 before being promoted to Assistant SM Bunbury.

The Reynolds family lived in the SM house for 13 years. It was up on the hill overlooking the station yard.

Alan wrote : "Our children used to walk through the hospital grounds into the back of the Pemberton School. When we first arrived, we had to park at the bottom of the 18 or so steps and walk up to the house. This very soon became a chore, particularly when carrying the young ones up after going out anywhere. A few years later I got a grader driver to cut a small road up along the fence and built a rough car-port. It was a bit hairy backing down at night but we managed."
