I note Chasewater Railway have a Mixed Steam and Diesel Industrial Gala this weekend (Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th March 2016), with special engines and a much busier running timetable than normal.
This event will be well worth a look – the Railway is one of our hidden gems, situated at Chasewater Country Park, and is well worth a visit. There will be stuff there for all the family, so please do wander down if you can.
Chasewater Railway had this to say about the event:
Don’t forget everyone it’s our start of season gala in March! (5th & 6th)… Why not come along and joins us to kick off the 2016 running season in style, as usual there will be plenty to see and do with an intensive freight and passenger service and brake van rides.
Our heritage centre and museum, oo scale model railway, gift and model shop and The Sidings tea room will be open at Brownhills West.
Then at Chasewater Heaths you will find the G scale model railway, gift & model shop and The Station Café. Mabel’s Vintage Carriage will also be open both at Brownhills West station Gates normally open around 9am with the first train movements happening around 10am.
