Sales of surplus railwayana at Stoke and Derby were attended and a fine collection of smaller relics grew, to be displayed at Hednesford in a Wolverton built TPO of 1909 vintage.The period 1965 to 1970 saw an increased concentration of effort at Chasewater on what was virtually a greenfield site.

This was probably the first hire of the loco by a preservation group.

The lads of the day saved their pocket money to buy Ian Allan’s reference books – not to make donations towards some old wooden coach.

The early members of the West Midlands Group stuck to their task, though, and by June 1960 had not only moved to a rail-connected site at Hednesford, but had also acquired by donation from the National Coal Board two, albeit derelict, 6-wheel coaches of Maryport & Carlisle Railway and Great Eastern Railway origins, dating from 18 respectively.

Firstly the London Railway Preservation Society who acquired and restored stock at Bishops Stortford and then Luton, before moving to Quainton Road to form the Quainton Railway Society Ltd.

Secondly, the Scottish Railway Preservation Society with their Murrayfield (Edinburgh) museum, then their Falkirk depot, before moving to Bo’ness to set up the Bo’ness & Kinneil Railway.

Track was laid with minimal manpower and equipment, a security compound and platform constructed, and facilities provided.

All restoration work on the predominantly pre-grouping rolling stock and industrial locomotives was carried out in the open.

The members then decided on a name change, from “RPS West Midlands District” to “Chasewater Light Railway Society”, which reflected more appropriately their aims and ambitions.

Things had changed from the pioneering days of collecting to the now more obvious role of operating a light railway.

The Coalport Branch would have been too costly in respect of engineering works and the GNR line was too “derelict”.

However, the then Aldridge-Brownhills Urban District Council was at that time developing a pleasure park along Chasewater, a canal reservoir, and part of the former 1881 MR trackbed was available for lease at a reasonable sum. Of the national RPS scheme envisaged by Noel Draycott, only two other groups prospered.

In April 1961, the ex-L&NWR Webb Coal Tank, preserved by private subscribers, arrived at Hednesford.
