Wooden Models

One of our most popular display cases is this one – containing a collection of wooden railway models hand-made by the late Mr. Eric Dee of Pelsall. (1931 – 2003).

Younger visitors like to see the models and the grown-ups appreciate the work and skill that has gone into making them.

Mr. Dee was a saddle maker by profession and made these toys for his grandchildren to play with.

He was a fine craftsman and amongst other interests made a fine collection of miniature saddles.

The collection has been kindly donated to the Chasewater Railway Museum by his daughter, Mrs. Jackie Bedward.1505
