Chasewater Railway Museum
Good to be back!
It felt good to be open yesterday after being closed for a while. There were more than 150 visitors through the door – more than we could have hoped for given the weather at the start of the day.
Sentinel above and DL7 below.
I have been busy sorting out photographs, some taken around Chasewater and others taken around Hednesford’s old station.
Hednesford old station buildings, looking towards Walsall.
Walsall end of the up platfrom, looking towards Rugeley.
There will be more when I manage to get them sorted and onto the database.

Some photos from Chasewater Railway – and one of Birmingham New Street Station!
These photos of Chasewater Railway were found by Godfrey amongst a collection given to the museum. They show Sentinel, hopefully back in steam next year, DL7 and an old DMU, all towards the Chasewater Heaths end of the line.
Birmingham New Street Station
It’s a bit different nowadays!!
What is interesting , for people of a certain age, is the poster for the Hippodrome Theatre – top of the bill – Billy Cotton and his Band – used to be regulars on the BBC Light Programme on the wireless!
Our thanks to Graham for the phot0.
