Brownhills West Station

Brownhills West Station, built in traditional Victorian style, offers visitors and volunteers comfort and convenience. The station buffet offers a variety of hot & cold snacks and drinks.

The Brownhills West headquarters has a 10 road layout. There are two bay platforms (1 & 2) and a through platform (3) which can accommodate 4 coaches.

During the design phase, care was taken to incorporate modern facilities into the building while maintaining an authentic feel. The double glazed windows are of period design and security shutters are hidden away behind decorative facias when not in use. The Victorian atmosphere is given a further touch of authenticity by the real coal fire.

Additional facilities include male, female & disabled toilets, Hot & cold buffet with indoor seating and level access to trains and all station areas to aid disabled visitors

Our car park allows parking for over 40 cars and an overflow car park which offers an additional 150 spaces.

All dogs are welcome on a lead.

If required, guided tours are given (For large groups please contact us prior to visit)

Chasewater Railway is happy to offer its facilities for parties and gatherings. Bookings can be made for birthdays and other occasions at Brownhills West station. We also hire trains for private parties. We can also accommodate large gatherings and meetings in the Heritage Centre.
