The Chasewater Transport Show – 2012
This year’s Show seemed busier than ever, well done to the organisers, the weather fine but not as warm as usual.
It was nice to see alot of the regular exhibits again, along with some not seen at Chasewater before.
The reservoir stil has a long way to go to fill up!
There was lots for the visitors to do –
When they had een round the show, a lot of the visitors walked a little farther into the park and called in the Chasewater Railway, first to the Narrow Gauge,
Then the Museum and Heritage Centre and across to the platform, where 2 small traction engines were attracting a lot of attention.
A few days before the show, the Railway had three Hunslet locos in the yard – a good old steamie and two diesels, one of which is now at a steel works in South Wales
On Platform 1, the Tri-Rail Shop is now selling G Scale models for anyone who wants Thomas and Friends running round the garden – call in and have a look!
Also on Platform 1, the ever-improving model railway was in full flow – as it is each Sunday.
The Museum was very popular – showing the latest exhibits!!
