Short video clips and stills from Bank Holiday Monday and Charity Day
There were plenty of stalls and plenty of visitors at Chasewater today for the annual Charity Day.After the distinctly dodgy weather on Saturday, we were very lucky with the weather today – dry all day and becoming brighter and warmer as the day progressed.Over in the Heritage Centre we were also kept busy – well over 200 visitors to the Museum. That’s the way we like it!
I was wandering around the Brownhills West station complete with camera when it occured to me that I had not seen the model railway on Platform 1 for a while.There were a couple of model diesel trains in action.The layout has developed since the last time that I saw it – its looking good at the moment, well worth a visit! Should be running this Sunday at the Charity Day on the railway.
School Holidays – Trains will run from 11.00am til 3.00pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays – July 27th to September 2nd
August 1st – Museum of Cannock Chase 21st Anniversary Celebrations at Hednesford.
The weather was kind to everyone with plenty of sunny spells.I didn’t have much time to take photos today, we were very busy in the Museum. The photos I did take were taken not long after the first train of the day had left Brownhills West and there were not many people about.The stalls were all in place by this time and it did get very much busier. It was again nice to see so many of our visitors going into the Heritage Centre and the Museum.
Our larger Barclay, formerly known as 701, but now looking very smart in NCB West Midland livery, was doing the honours today.
The powers-that-be say that we are running steam for the remainder of the midweek services, I believe Asbestos will be working on Tuesday.
