A Letter from Nantwich update  

Summer 2013                             

Now passengers get longer ride for their money

Train driver John Walkington takes the train through the shed.

THE acquisition of the plot of land for a second car park led to an extension of another asset at the Methodist Church Centre.

   The miniature train now takes the passengers on a longer journey (above). Well, only another 20 to 30 yards, admittedly, but it all adds to the fun.

   The train journey used to finish at a shed at the end of the track. But now the train emerges at a second door at the back of the building and continues until the

 

last coach reaches the boundary between the church land and the car park on the Morrison's supermarket site.

   The previous engine is pictured (above) at that point. 

  There is no disembarkation at that end of the line and the train returns with its passengers to the Hospital Street end of the track.


Nantwich scenes depicted in Susannah's mural

THE mural, right is by local artist, Susannah Fishburne and was put in place in the summer of 2013.

   It was the idea of Church Minister, the Rev Malcolm Lorrimer, and was formally "unveiled" by Crewe and Nantwich MP, Edward Timpson.

   It depicts the Methodist Church Centre (top left), black and white buildings in the town Square (top right), Nantwich railway station (bottom left) and a steam engine (bottom right).

   It also includes (in the top right-hand corner) a hot-air balloon which can sometimes be seen over Nantwich.
