Chasewater Railway Museum – an interesting letter.
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.
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.
