Three old photos – pre-Chasewater Heaths

Three old photos

pre-Chasewater Heaths

These photos came from Steve Organ’s Collection

Going round the bend (!) towards Chasewater Heaths.  Looks like Arthur Edwards in Hi-Viz, don’t know the other chap – sorry.

A shot of the pld Brownhills West station with, I believe, Kim Wilkins.

P.Way gang with DL7, I think.  There are two chaps who I don’t know, those I do know are Arthur Edwards, David Bathurst, the 2 don’t knows, then Dave Pearson, Les Emery and, at the front, a young helper, Jim Bates and Andy Clegg – not forgetting Beckie.

The first three photos in this selection show what a mess was left when the old station came down.  What to do about it – stick a motorway through it!  It didn’t quite happen that way, more like – shift your railway so we can build a motorway!

The fourth photo shows a line put in to move the rolling stock from the old depot to the new one., as shown in the next two photos.

The final three show the beginings of the new Brownhills West station and yard.

Our thanks again to the family of Arthur (Jim) Higgins for giving this collection to the Chasewater Railway Museum.Old Brownhills West,New Brownhills West staion,
