Chasewater Railway Museum – one of many lamps!

Chasewater Railway Museum 

One of many lamps!

This is a level-crossing gate lamp, well restored and painted by Nigel Canning.

After seeing use at Brownhills West when trains were running into the bay platform it was put into stores until it came to light and Nigel got to work on it.

Unfortunately, the origin of the lamp is unknown.

Some more photos have come to light – leaving the old Brownhills West Yard
