Chasewater Railway Museum
From loan to own
After a fair few years with the Museum on loan, our friend, known as ‘Meccano Joe’ has very kindly given these 3 large and some smaller items from his large collection to Chasewater Railway Museum.
They have always created great interest from kids young and not-so-young, and evoked many memories, as I’m sure they will for years to come.
These items, along with many more, were on show some years ago at Christmas in the Heritage Centre, where Santa used to reside. (Picture below).
Many, many thanks Joe.
The models can be seen on this photo, with the never-to-be-forgotten talking robot, wired for sound, who talked to the children with no apparent human aid! He got some amazing looks!
