Overview

The Chasewater Railway operates heritage steam and diesel trains on Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays throughout the year, most Saturdays Easter to October and certain weekdays throughout the summer. The Railway is rapidly gaining recognition as one of the major visitor attractions within the Walsall, Lichfield & Cannock areas. With its policy of great value fares and membership fees, it offers an excellent day out for families, friends and railway enthusiasts as well as corporate and social hospitality. The Railway operates passenger trains from its headquarters at Brownhills West to Chasetown Church Street, with intermediate stations at Norton Lakeside and Chasewater Heaths. A round trip of nearly 4 miles takes about 45 minutes. Day Rover tickets offer unlimited travel on all trains operating on the day of issue.

there were a number of small children, whose faces were incredulous mirrors of what they saw and heard. None that I saw were in the least bit frightened (neither was our dog). Steam trains these days can be a bit too much, but a journey...More
