Chasewater Railway Museum – Additions to our railway models

Chasewater Railway Museum

Additions to our railway models


A recent donation of various items of ‘0’ gauge rolling stock, track and accessories has added a further dimension to the Chasewater Railway Museum collection of tin-plate model trains.

Of particular note are a Hornby No.2 tank locomotive of 4-4-4 wheel arrangement in LNER livery with crest on the side of the cab.  This clockwork model dates from 1926.  Also of Hornby manufacture are four No.1 passenger coaches of simple appearance, these in LNER brown with clerestory roofs (or should that be rooves? – spellchecker says they are both right!), these little four-wheelers date back to the late 1920s.


Two further LNER vehicles, and in nice condition, are two bogie wagons, a No.2 timber wagon made during the period 1924-1926 and a No.2 lumber wagon from the same period.

Garden Railway, StalbridgeGarden Railway, Stalbridge
I came across the model railway by chance in a back garden in Stalbridge. The owner had built all the track, locos and rolling stock himself in absolutely beautiful detail. He had also built a large number of other models in a wide variety of scales. These included fully working trains and fairground rides mostly in wood but all with superb engineering skill and an absolutely immaculate detailed finish. I was privileged to be shown some of his work.
