The restoration project of the rebuilding of the Former Platform Shelter from Chartley Station at the Amerton Farm centre as part of the Staffordshire Narrow Guage Railway Society layout has now finished after six years work, which saw the dismantling of the shelter at Chartley and it's rebuilding at Amerton where it is now in use.

The Great Northern Railway platform shelter from Chartley Station on the nearby Stafford - Uttoxeter line was one of the most important acquisitions by the Staffordshire Narrow Guage Railway Society generously donated by Mr P. Evans.

This 1880s wooden shelter has been fully restored and repainted by members of the Staffordshire Industrial Archaeology Society, while SNGRS members have constructed the foundations and concrete slab. It will be the permanent museum where some of the smaller items of Staffordshire interest may be displayed.
