Loos like an excellent day!

Chasewater Railway – the little gem of a local preserved industrial railway is this Sunday (7th August 2016) staging it’s Annual Charities Day, when the railway will be operating with steam trains, and there will be charity stalls and activities at Brownhills West Station.

The Charities Day is always great fun and a good way to find out what local groups are up to – as well as to enjoy fun and games for all the family, explore the working railway and Country Park it runs in.

Chasewater Railway is a wonderful attraction with regular passenger services at weekends and during school holidays, featuring two excellent cafes and a fascinating museum that chronicles not just railway history, but that of our area and industry.

The whole thing is staffed by helpful and friendly volunteers who are always ready to chat and talk about the railway and rolling stock.

At Brownhills west station there are also a lovely model railway, plus a couple of great vintage and collectible stalls. The railway itself has a shop selling books, rail models, toys and other merchandise.

Please do pop down if you haven’t already – Chasewater Railway really isn’t pushed enough; it’s wonderful.

You can check their website here – trains run this and every weekend from 11am to 4pm with the museum, cafes and stations open earlier.

    I do remember in the mid to late seventies going to CLR with a schoolmate of mine called Michel Webb and sleeping the night in a GWR Toad brake van then having a breakfast in the morning before stoking up the firebox of a 0-4-0 saddle tank engine called Asbestos ready for it to do its days duties.Im not sure wether CLR have Asbestos anymore or wether Michel still works there?But the experience of two schoolboys staying out all night talking about trains and being self sufficient has stayed with me forever.If your out there Webby get in touch mate.Be nice to hear from you..
