Moving the Goods weekend

demonstration goods trains plus the return to steam traffic of Waleswood after 30 years. Join us for a fabulous weekend and memories of days gone by.

We are proud to announce….

It is with pleasure that we would like to announce the arrival of our new long term resident at Chasewater. Hudswell Clarke no 750 ‘Waleswood’ is now safely tucked up in the Heritage centre. The loco will undergo some initial steam tests followed by some gentle running in before joining our other locos in the steam shed. We are proud to be able to welcome Waleswood and its owner Colin and his team to the railway. Cant wait to see this beauty in action.
