More Recent Chasewater Railway Museum Activity
A couple of Thursdays in August have seen Chasewater Railway and the Aston Manor Road Transport Museum put on a joint project including children’s activities at each venue and a train and bus ride. This is one of the buses used.
Another item bought by Barry Bull. A Rhymney Railway Company Coat-of-Arms. The Rhymney Railway was virtually a single stretch of main line, some fifty miles in length, by which the Rhymney Valley was connected to the docks at Cardiff in the county of Glamorgan, South Wales.
The final item at the moment (27-8-2013) is this life-size fibre-glass model of a pit pony. It was given to Chasewater Railway Museum by the Museum of Cannock Chase, who are re-designing their mining display, after having been seen offered on the Staffordshire Museums’ Development Officer’s weekly update email. A couple of quick emails and some phone calls made sure of a good home for the pony! Our thanks to Nick Bullock for the use of his van.
