24 years after closure to passengers in 1965, Saturday 08/04/1989 saw the Walsall to Hednesford line re-opened to passenger trains. This was the first public day, with a special service: the full scheduled passenger service started on Monday 10/04/1989. These photos show the first train, the 08:33 from Walsall. A short coach ride was arranged around Cannock Chase for participants.
