Chasewater Railway – 2018 Annual Charities Day this Sunday!

Always a great day out!

Chasewater Railway – the little gem of a local preserved industrial railway is this Sunday (12th August 2018) 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.

I hear that the Swan Lady, Irene Hodges will be there too – she’s the guardian angel for the Chasewater Swans and a lovely kind lady who’s well worth chatting to and deserves our support.

There’s a last minute update that there will be something extra for the kids too – the ‘Fancy a Jump’ inflatable crew will be there!

We welcome our friends at FANCY A JUMP to this Sunday’s charities day lineup. Come along and have a bounce!

All the kids love a bouncy castle!

Lots of charity stalls, steam train rides, museum, shops, model railways and our The Sidings Tea Room there is something for all the family at Chasewater Railway. See you there!

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.
