Model of the Cannock & Rugeley Paddy Train

Model of the Cannock & Rugeley Colliery

Paddy Train

In late 2017 the  Chasewater Railway Museum was handed a query from Ray Foster with regard to the Cannock & Rugeley Colliery  Paddy Train, which ran from Hednesford to the colliery in Cannock Wood

We have tried to answer one or two other queries in the time since, the latest ones being about the loco and the size of the nameplate, numberplate and the size of the letters ‘CRC’ on the tanks.  Some of the items are in the Museum collection so it was relatively simple to be of help.  Now that Ray has completed his ‘0’ gauge model, he has sent us a photograph of the complete train.  A first class job!

If anyone is interested in getting the parts for the train Ray can direct them to the sources, just add your details in a comment on the blog post.

Our congratulations to Ray on the completion of his model and our thanks for allowing the use of the photograph.
