There were ten employee cottages at Waterfall.  Five are adjacent to the station on the north side of the bridge with another five on the south side of the bridge. The NSW Heritage council listing for the Waterfall station group lists them as "type 8 timber workers cottages". The cottages were built around 1905 when the station was moved to its present site.

At this time Waterfall had it own locomotive depot. In 1917 the depot had 15 standard goods T-class engines on the books (Booth, R. K. (1979) Byways of Steam: Waterfall. Roundhouse Volume 16 (1), 1979). The establishment of the locomotive Depot at Thirrroul in late 1917 brought about the demise of Waterfall as a locomotive depot.
