Chasewater Railway – the little gem of a local preserved industrial railway is this Saturday (30th March 2019) staging it’s Annual Volunteers Day, when the railway will be holding an event aimed at recruiting more folk interested in helping out with all aspects of running and maintaining the local preserved line.
The Volunteer Day runs from 11am until 4pm, and there will be talks and tours and current volunteers who can tell you all about it. You just need to be aged 14 or over and keen!

Don’t forget it’s our volunteers day this Saturday 30th March 2019!
Come along and see for yourself up close what it’s like to volunteer at Chasewater Railway, if you are 14 or over we have volunteer roles in all departments and we appreciate as much or as little time as you can give to us, tasks such as cleaning locos and carriages is hugely appreciated.
The meeting point is at Brownhills west booking office where you will be taken round in groups by one of our guides between 11am – 4pm where at the end you will be given the opportunity to join as a working member.
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.
