Chasewater Railway Museum – a few old signs

Chasewater Railway Museum

A few warning signs from our collectioN


The first one is made from wood with cast iron lettering.  We do not know which railway it came from.


Next is an LNWR cast iron notice



Now a London & South Western Railway Notice – cast iron.


A Midland Railway cast iron sign


Ex NCB line between Cannock Wood and Chase Terrace. Location: Ironstone Road, up from the ‘Rag’, seen in the photo below.

To the Rag

Two photos of a sign, before restoration and nearing completion.



This was found in the mid 1960s in the Wyrley Branch of the Wyrley & Essington Canal which is now under Vernon Way, in the New Invention, Essington area. The railway crossing of the A4124 Lichfield Road from Holly Bank Colliery to the canal basin at Short heath was about 150 yards away on the other side of the M6. It seems logical to assume that this was where the sign was originally placed.



Finally, one of the Railway’s own signs, from the early days at Chasewater.
