Chasewater Railway Museum
Photo info please?
This is a photo in our collection but we don’t know anything about it except what it says underneath. Does anyone have any idea where on the Chase this 2 ft. gauge railway was? Or the identity of Colonel Wilson?
When the ground was being prepared for the Chasewater Heaths Station, rails of different gauges were uncovered, but we don’t know any more than that.
Latest information, from Phillip Halfpenny: It’s a Manning Wardle, No. 1371/1897. At Great Wyrley Colliery, rebuilt in 1911, scrapped in 1944. Thanks to Phillip.
