Announcement – Steve Organ

Colin McAndrew – Final weekend before 10 Yearly overhaul

Our ever popular Andrew Barclay 0-4-0st Colin McAndrew of 1911 will be withdrawn for its 10 yearly overhaul after this weekend Sunday 16th July.

Colin McAndrew has proved one of our most useful locomotives and its performance has been superb even more so after some modifications to the smokebox/exhaust draughting arrangements giving far more efficient steaming. The loco will take its place in the overhaul line and having had a programme of ongoing regular and preventative maintenance during the last 10 years it is not envisaged to be out of traffic for too long. Come along and help give the loco a great send off.



Burton Breweries Locomotives Day- July 9th

Our local brewery locomotive collection feature at Brownhills West station along with some road vehicles to recreate a once everyday sight in Burton upon Trent area. Also a steam operated service runs to our normal time table with regular fares applying. Please scroll down for more information.



This weekends popular Burton Brewery Locomotives event at Chasewater Railway’s Brownhills West Station will also coincide with the opportunity to link in with an independently operated bus service should you wish to also visit the Aldridge Transport Museum open day as well and vice versa.

Featuring both visiting and their own vehicles of varying ages, the buses will be operating between Aldridge Transport Museum(ATM) and our Chasewater Heaths station and return. Details of their event and bus service times can be found at .


Both events are run independently of each other and have separate charges, for the railway event our standard fares apply then see the link for entry details for ATM event.

Important info: Please make sure you note your last connecting times carefully and as usual all services are subject to alteration and/or availability. Due to a group booking, accommodation on the 2:45pm train departure from BHW and its return from CWH will be slightly reduced from usual.
