I notice that this Sunday, 16th June 2019, there’s a rather fun looking Experience the 1940s event being staged at Chasewater Railway – just the thing to treat the old fella to on Fathers day.
The fair runs from 10am until 5pm at Brownhills West Station (Use the Chasewater main entrance from the A5 and Pool Road) and there will be entertainment from the Bluebird Belles and others, vintage ephemera stalls, food and drink. the noted tea rooms and of course the wonderful atmosphere provided by a working preserved steam railway.
To be clear, as I understand it the price is for train rides: The event at the station is free to enter as usual.
The organisers said:
Experience the 1940s at Chasewater Railway this Father’s day!
Music, entertainment, vintage vehicles, re-enactors and of course Train rides through the beautiful Chasewater Country Park. Fun for all the family!
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.
You can check their website here – trains run this and every weekend from 11am to 4pm with the museum, cafes and stations open earlier.
