Amerton Railway 25th Anniversary & S&U Day : Opening at 11.00 am

On 23rd May the Railway will be hosting a book signing event for the ‘Staffordshire & Uttoxeter Railway’ by Mike Fell (as Allan Baker is unfortunately unavailable) in the former Chartley & Stowe Waiting Room now located at Amerton.  This coincides with the Railway’s 25th Anniversary and we will be holding a commemoration of the ‘Cutting the First Sod’ ceremony in 1990 when the Railway started to build on a ‘greenfield’ site next to Amerton Farm.  There will be a display of S&U and Amerton Railway artefacts and photographs and the Running Shed and Workshops will be open for ‘Behind the Scenes’ Tours.  Bagnall ‘Isabel’ and Hunslet Wren ‘Jennie’ will be operating passenger and RNAD goods trains throughout the day.  The Event opens at 11.00 with trains from 11.30 and the Commemoration Event at 12.30
