Chasewater Railway Museum

A locally built loco.

A photograph from our collection of one of the locomotives which worked in the area and was actually built here!

05040 No.7 Birch 2-4-0T Bt Rawnsley 1888 C & R

No.7 Birch 2-4-0T Built at Rawnsley in 1888 but not put to work till 1890. Worked at Brereton 1949/50. Scrapped at Brereton circa 1956.

This next picture shows the loco well past its best – very sad.
