Sans Pareil is a replica of Timothy Hackworth’s 1829 locomotive which competed against Stephenson’s ‘Rocket’ at the famous Rainhill Trials.
This locomotive came to Chasewater in 2001 and 2002 and proved to be very popular with railway enthusiasts and the general public alike.
Passenger train services ran between Brownhills West and Chasewater Heaths, alternating between Sans Pareil and Sentinel.Outside the loco shedLoading up at Brownhills WestChasewater Heaths
