News – Grant

 

The Museum has obtained a grant of £3745 to cover electricity costs. This follows an application to ensure the Museum’s fragile collections can receive appropriate environmental control in these difficult times.

 

The grant is from Arts Council England’s Covid-19 Emergency Response Fund and was only made possible due to public funding from the National Lottery.

 

Our thanks to the National Lottery and its players.

Industrial Railway Society Day at Chasewater Railway. 16-04-2011

 

Industrial Railway Society Day at Chasewater Railway. 16-04-2011

A look back at a proud moment for the Museum in 2011, nine years ago

Industrial Railway Society Day at Chasewater Railway.

 The Chasewater Railway was honoured to host the Annual General Meeting of the Industrial Railway Society on Saturday 16th April 2011.

The day started with the unveiling of the Eric Tonks Collection of locomotive nameplates and worksplates, this was, of course held in the Museum.Following this, and many photographs, a number of rides down the line with ‘Asbestos’ and ‘Linda’ taking turns in hauling the train.  I think that ‘Colin McAndrew’ was in steam later.Pic by oakparkrunner

The Marston’s Baguley diesel shunter and the Class 08 were also put through their paces.

There was a buffet lunch on the first floor of the Heritage Centre which was well appreciated – well done Linda and Mavis and anyone else involved.

The Annual General Meeting was held after lunch, followed by more railway activity.Pic by oakparkrunner

Our visitors’ book bears testimony as to how well Chasewater Railway’s efforts were appreciated.  Well done everyone.
