Chasewater Railway Museum – an interesting letter.

10377

The Chasewater Railway Museum has been given a letter dated 1957 from the Cannock & Rugeley Collieries in reply to Mr. H.C.Casserley’s request for permission to visit the Colliery for photographing the locos, etc.
Mr. Casserley was a very highly regarded railway photographer who had many books published.

The letter was kindly donated to the Museum by Mr. Debens.

B15 Birch C & R 6-5-1946 H.C.Casserley
This was not to be his first visit to the Colliery as we have in our collection a photo taken by Mr. Casserley of the CRC loco ‘Birch’ dated 1946!

The coal industry was nationalised in 1947.
