Chasewater Railway Museum
And another visiting loco – Including video
A Hunslet 0-6-0ST Austerity class, 3839/1956
Built by Hunslet of Leeds, Wimblebury was delivered new to the National Coal Board at Cannock Wood Colliery near Hednesford in Staffordshire, and worked there until withdrawn in the early 1970s. Originally earmarked for spares for another engine, Wimblebury was purchased privately for preservation and moved to the Foxfield Railway in Staffordshire on 26th September 1973.
This, in 2009, is the second visit to Chasewater by this popular engine in recent years.
