Chasewater Railway Museum
First published June 26th 2009 – There’s been a lot of comings and goings since then, so Maybe have another look!!
At last it’s happened – all the cases have lighting.
No more watching our visitors pressing their noses to the glass to see what we have in our collection. What a relief!
Our latest addition is a model of a locomotive boiler, based on a Royal Scot class loco.
Another of our newer items is a local warning sign, originally from the top of Ironstone Road, from the level crossing above the ‘Rag’ public house.
One other local item is the train staff for the single line from Walsall Wood colliery to Norton Junction on the LNWR. It’s the black one at the front.
Our museum is well worth a visit, so why not come along? It’s free!
In a couple of weeks, 12th July, (2009) we shall be holding our model railway exhibition, and there will be one layout in the museum.
Next on the agenda, as far as I am concerned, is a laptop for museum use. Life would be so much easier. One has been promised, but when………?
We did get one shortly afterwards (not new) but now, in 2015, it is approaching complete knackered-up-ness!!
