Sorry again for the late notice but I note Chasewater Railway have their late Summer Gala this weekend (Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September 2017), with special guest engine Bagnall 0-4-0ST 2842 Kent No 2 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:
Join us for our Summer Gala on the 9th and 10th of September. Featuring Bagnall 0-4-0ST 2648 Dunlop No.6 returning to steam after her 10 year overhaul, a guest steam engine Bagnall 0-4-0ST 2842 Kent No.2 plus an intensive passenger timetable and various mixed freight demonstrations during the day.
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.
