History and use
This shield was presented to members of the Queensland Railway Institute 1977 golf team for winning a carnival between railway institutes.

Members of Australian railway institutes participated in local sporting competitions and representative sides were chosen to compete against other interstate railway institutions. Sports included football, rifle shooting, tennis, table tennis and cricket. New South Wales and Queensland Railway Institutes played against each other in Rugby League tests, while the majority of other states played Australian Rules Football tests. Cricket was the biggest of the sports, with all states participating, including the Commonwealth Railway, in cricket competitions. Teams from New Zealand also participated regularly in the national competitions.

A side to represent the Queensland Railway Institute at the1977 Australian Railways Institutes' Intersystem Golf Carnival in Brisbane was chosen in late 1976. The team comprised of: I. Noon (Clerk, Redbank; Captain), D. Trott (Clerk, Brisbane; Vice-Captain), R. Barlow (Clerk, Toowoomba), H. Downes (Guard, Mayne), S.M Downes (Guard, Mayne), L.J Fanning (Toolmaker, Ipswich), N.J Gilchrist (Driver, Gympie), D. H Halliday (clerk, Cairns), C. Hossack (Clerk, Brisbane), G.
