Galleries : Chasewater History – 1960s & 1970s

This set of photographs shows the Railway from its embryonic days in 1960, then operating out of the Hednesford base that was cleared to make-way for the M6 Toll Road in 2004, running along part of an ex-Midland Railway trackbed through the colliery wasteland of the Cannock coalfields up until the close of the 1970s.
