Chasewater Railway Museum – Nice New Acquisition

Chasewater Railway Museum 

Nice New Acquisition

This latest acquisition is a very welcome addition to the Museum’s collection of local Cannock Chase items.

Nameplate:  Foggo, 1946, from a standard gauge 0-4-2ST built at the Chasetown workshops of the Cannock Chase Colliery Co.Ltd. in 1946, using parts supplied by Beyer Peacock, together with spare parts accumulated over the years from similar locomotives already at work at the colliery.  The name derives from Mr. Foggo, the General Manager of the company at the time and the nameplate incorporates the year of build.  It became National Coal Board property on 1st January, 1947.  Transferred to Coppice Colliery in early 1954 and to Brereton Colliery later the year.  Scrapped by W.H.Arnott Young in January 1961.  Cast Brass, 21½”x 8¾”, the front repainted.

No automatic alt text available.

Did you or one of your family work at one of the many Collieries in the Cannock & Rugeley area. If so why not get one of the mining books published by the Cannock Chase Mining Historical Society. There are 18 books in the series, each one covering one or more of the local Collieries. A very informative collection, written by the miners, who worked at them. These are available from Chasewater Railway Museum. Perhaps an ideal Christmas present. Contact me if you need more information.

Chasewater Railway Museum – A New Acquisition

Chasewater Railway Museum 

A New Acquisition

Refurbished outdoor-type bench given to the railway by Mr.George Clark in memory of his wife, Christine.  There are no makers’ marks on the bench, but it may have been on the London, Tilbury and Southend Line at some point. This bench will replace the one which has been on the platform for some years and will now be refurbished by the same man who refurbished the bench in the museum, courtesy of Godfrey and Marion’s Bench Fund. When completed, this bench will be found a home inside at one of the stations.

A very nice inscription on the plaque

‘Look for me in rainbows’

Lovely
