Events on the weekend of July 7th & 8th

Saturday & Sunday – July 7th & 8th

This year’s Chasewater Railway’s Model Railway Exhibition is to be held on both days over the weekend – full details below.

Also to be held on both days, at Amerton Railway, is a charity event:

On 7th and 8th July 2012 the railway will be running in aid of a charity which Malcolm Garner supports for deaf children in the Gambia – The Gambia Deaf Children’s Support Project”. On these two days steam locomotives Isabel and Paddy will be in steam and the Hayfield Coach will be in use behind Paddy, visiting the railway to give special rides.

So, two events in two days, nice and easy – Chasewater Railway for the Model Exhibition one day, and a ride into the Staffordshire countryside to support the charity on the other.

Finally, if you feel like getting up early on Saturday 7th July,

Information from the South Staffordshire Railway website:

This site is well worth a visit, especially for Chasewater Railway members, as the Chasewater line used to meet the main line at Anglesey Sidings, and there are some good pictures on there when it was Charrington’s oil depot, and lots more besides.
