On The Chasewater Scene

  I’ve come across another couple of Railway Forums on my bookshelves.

Refit for the Maryport coach

The Chasewater Railway’s historic Maryport and Carlisle Railway carriage is undergoing a refit after last year’s full season.  Further panelling work is to start and there will be a repaint.  Meanwhile, excellent progress is being made on the Manchester, Sheffield and Lincoln carriage, and it is hoped to restore the compartments to original condition as far as is possible.

Arrival and Departure at Foxfield

‘Austerity ‘ type 0-6-0ST ‘Wimblebury’ was delivered to the Foxfield Light Railway in North Staffordshire From Cannock Wood Colliery last September, and a month later the Colliery locomotive ‘Littleton No.5 left the railway to go to the Main Line Steam Trust at Loughborough.

‘Wimblebury’ was built in 1956, works number 3839, and weighs about 48 tons.  Its boiler and firebox are both in good condition but some boiler tubes will require replacing.  Externally the paintwork looks a treat in blue livery, lined out in yellow.  The locomotive is owned by Alan Williamson and Laurie Hopkins.
