Chasewater Railway Museum – An Important Addition to our Archives

Chasewater Railway Museum 

A Most Important Addition to our Archives

10924-1-crop

A most important addition to the Museum’s archives is this programme of the evening’s event, held in the Heritage Centre on Friday evening, 23-9-2016

The award was presented to the Railway by Her Majesty’s Lord-Llieutenent for Staffordshire, Mr. Ian Dudson CBE Cst.

After the presentation there followed a train ride to Chasewater Heaths for the presentation of a replica crystal and scroll to the staff from the station.

On return to Brownhills West, an excellent buffet was on offer, which was enjoyed by everyone.  Congratulations to the catering staff.

Following a tour of the buildings, including the Museum, the Lord-Lieutenant departed.

At the conclusion of the evening, Mark Sealey, Chairman of the Railway, presented all working volunteers with a commemorative QAVS badge.

Chasewater Railway Museum – Another Flyer comes to light

Chasewater Railway Museum –

Another Flyer comes to light

This time it’s a Railwayana Fair and Bus Rally, held at the time, in the early eighties, when Chasewater railway was not running trains.

A few enthusiasts kept going at Chasewater trying to raise funds for the time when the railway re-started operations.

Chasewater Railway Museum – ‘Museums at Night’ event

Chasewater Railway Museum

‘Museums at Night’ event

2014_08080028

On May 13th 2016 the Chasewater Railway Museum went ‘out on the road’ to the Museums at Night event, hosted by the Museum of Cannock Chase.

There were several other grooups there, including the Tamworth Aviation Group, Air Britain, Wedding Cars, and a group of Green Bus enthusiasts plus a display of vehicles outside.  Also in the Museum was the ongoing exhibition ‘Transport of Delight’ by Chris Holloway – well worth a visit, running till June 19th.

The event was very well organised by the Museum of Cannock Chase, it just needed a little more public support.  Perhaps the timing was not the best – 5.00pm till 8.00pm on a Friday evening, in retrospect, doesn’t seem ideal.

It was the Chasewater Railway Museum’s first event of the year and we all thoroughly enjoyed it.
