Chasewater Railway Museum
new in July 2011
Amongst other items recently acquired by the Museum, although not yet on proper display (but are available for viewing!) are two railway maps, the first, Airey’s Railway Map of Staffordshire and District, and the other
Bradshaw’s 19th century ‘Map and Sections of the Railways of Great Britain’
This final item is of particular local interest, as they don’t come along very often. It is a block instrument from the East Cannock Junction signal box at Hednesford. The signal box was situated between Cannock and Hednesford where there was a junction between the Walsall to Rugeley line and the Norton Branch which went to High Bridge Sidings at Pelsall, through Norton Canes.
The block instrument was purchased by the Museum, the two maps were donated.
If you should have anything of railway interest that you no longer require, remember us!
Come along and pay us a visit – open every Sunday from 11.00am till 3.30pm, and it’s free!
