4 A pictorial retrospect
of formative days of The
Churnet Valley Railway...

The NSR lapel
badge (top) is just one of several items we used to sell during
the "Cheshire & Staffordshire" days. The two lower
items are (hippie?) pendants that were made by one of our early
members. The lady concerned used to cut the basic shapes from
copper sheet and then create the design in enamel and stove it
herself in a small enamelling stove. Such items would be sold
at such places as Leek Show and other events organised by various
railway societies throughout the North and what is now the West
Midland. Basic maybe but it was all we were able to do to raise
funds in those far-off early days.
