Chasewater Railway Made in Staffordshire Gala this weekend!

It’s the steamiest you’ll get full clothed!

Sorry again for the late notice but I note Chasewater Railway have their Made in Staffordshire 50th Anniversary Gala this spring Bank Holiday weekend (Saturday 26th through to Monday 28th May 2018), with loads of steam and diesel heritage traction and a 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 50th anniversary of steam at Chasewater.

We are making it a special weekend with a ‘made in Staffordshire’ theme.

Come along and join us for this special event running from Saturday 26th to Monday 28th May. There will be lots to see and do with loads of steam and diesel locos working. Everyone welcome, including the dog!

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.
