These items were brought into the museum by Bob Duffill after a bit of a clear-out at home.  Welcome additions to the collection.

Trolley Bus 616 at Hednesford – Photo Godfrey Hucker.

Trolleybuses were vibration free and capable of long lives, many chassis being given new bodies. However, like other operators, Wolverhampton chose in the 1960s to scrap its trolleybus system and 616 retired in November 1963. It was presented to the Railway Preservation Society, Hednesford, and was stored at Alton in Hampshire for many years. To safeguard the future of this classic example of Wolverhampton’s post-war trolleybus fleet, the RPS passed it to the Trust’s predecessor in 1975. The Trust soon moved 616 to secure, undercover accommodation in north-west England and there it remained until arriving at Wythall at last, for the first time, in July 2004.

Old Chasewater Railway Photos

The XL list shows all the photos in Box File 10149.  The collection has been with the Museum for some time, many taken by Steve Organ.  There are a lot of very similar photos so we have tried to sort out the ones which are not duplicated.  The first selection shows ‘Sans Pareil’ which visited Chasewater on a couple of occasions in the early 2000s.

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.
