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.
