The coming weekend (18-19th March 2011) sees the return of the Chasewater Railway Steam Gala. This well-supported, fun family event is a cracking day out for all. The little ones will love the steam trains – the sight of Thomas’s real-life relatives is sure to enthrall. For the older members of the family, there are diesels, narrow gauge, the museum, and don’t forget the tearooms. There will be plenty of old hands about to chat to, too, so nostalgia and local history will not be in short supply. An increased frequency timetable will run, so everyone will get a good seat.
Chasewater Railway is the hidden gem in the local area. Many are surprised when they first find it – if you haven’t heard of it before, this is a great weekend to check out this welcoming, passionate society and their fascinating, lovingly preserved line.
