I noticed Chasewater Steam Railway have their Annual Charities Day this Sunday (10th August 2014), with stalls and entertainment for all, and also pet microchipping for a token donation to the RSPCA.
Further, this little gem of a railway, tucked in the corner of the wonderful Chasewater Country Park in Brownhills, have a Grandparents Day the following Thursday, 14th August 2014. For this, they have cleverly teamed up with Aston Manor Road Transport Museum in Aldridge, and are offering all-in tickets for £6 per person, which entitle the holder to museum entry at Aldridge, free busrides on heritage buses between the AMRTM and Chasewater, and a ride on the train.
This is a considerable saving over the normal prices, and could well keep the grandparents and kids out of your hair all day!
Timetables and further details (of both events) available on the flyers above and below, and also from the Chasewater Railway Website.
If you’ve not been, both attractions are great collections, maintained and operated by true enthusiasts, and they’re right on our doorstep. Do check them out.
