Chasewater Railway Museum – Littleton Colliery warning notice

Chasewater Railway Museum 

Littleton Colliery warning notice

An opportunity presented itself recently to acquire by way of private purchase half a dozen items of local colliery railway interest. Not since the 1960s and early 1970s, when in that period a good relationship existed between the Railway Preservation Society and local National Coal Board management and which resulted in several donations of interest has the chance to obtain in bulk such star items for the museum collection. Finally a possibly unique cast iron sign headed The Littleton Collieries Ltd.  The last of the six items, the 3 nameplates and 2 worksplates have been posted recently.
