Chasewater Railway Museum
Our latest item
Thanks to Rob Cadman, who spotted the item on ebay, we were able to obtain, at a reasonable price, a small wagon repair plate somewhat unusually produced in a lead material, and CRC (Cannock & Rugeley Colliery) in origin, when they replaced an ex Midland Railway wagon – number 74545 6-1943. Size, approximately 6″x 4″ . Very likely this was a 12 ton coal wagon but this is not yet verified.
Many of these old Midland Railway wagons were withdrawn in the 1920s and 30s and replaced by the LMS.
