Museum Closed 19th & 26th November

As there are no trains running for the next two Sundays – 19th and 26th November – and access to the Heritage Centre is likely to be restricted, the Museum will not be open.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

Our thanks to Dave Borthwick for giving these photos to the Chasewater Railway Museum.

This set of photos shows the start of the new yard at Brownhills West.  Negotiations by the Board of the Railway, led by David Bathurst and the late Steve Organ, provided the Railway with the current site, with the station and layout as we see today, 100 yards or so  towards Chasewater Heaths, which opened around the year 2000.

All of Dave Borthwick’s photos will be included in the Chasewater Railway Museum Catalogue in the near future.

This was the home of Chasewater Railway before the M6 Toll came along and buried it!  Negotiations by the Board of the Railway, led by David Bathurst and the late Steve Organ, provided the Railway with the current site, with the station and layout as we see today, 100 yards or so  towards Chasewater Heaths, which opened around the year 2000.

Chasewater Railway Museum – News

Chasewater Railway Museum

News

A new television show for a national network is currently in production and important historical moments within the Midlands area are being researched. It is hoped to garner some interest in this region and find participants with fascinating stories, or mysteries from their ancestral pasts’.
There will be simple personal stories, as well as narratives that touch upon Britain as a whole but undoubtedly, some will address historical moments particular to their home region.
We want to tap into important historical events particular to the Midlands – both well known, as well as those that seem to have been forgotten. This is where you come in: we are asking organisations like yours to help get the word out by circulating our appeal (see attachment), either using social media, email, displaying a print out on notice boards or simply, by good old fashioned word of mouth.
