Chasewater Railway Museum – Good to be back!

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.

There will be more when I manage to get them sorted and onto the database.

We have received a number of photographs from Steve’s collection and are sorting out those which will be added to our collection.  There are also photos on other subjects which we may well post over time.

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.
