Chasewater Railway Museum

New Items, Including one from Brownhills

The first is a rubber stamp – marked ‘Brownhills LMR 7’ – and it’s not very often that we see something quite so local!

StampImpressionThis was given to the Museum by Colin Marklew of Brownhills and came from the Brownhills Station goods yard off the Pelsall Road.  Many thanks Colin.
