Statfold Barn Railway - Enthusiasts Weekend

Set within 1,000 acres of stunning Staffordshire countryside, Statfold Barn Railway is close to the large market town of Tamworth, making the venue ideally placed in the heart of England for visitors

An idyllic narrow-gauge steam railway and museum provide the backdrop for weddings, parties, conferences and special events. Not forgetting the rail enthusiasts who continue restoration work and share the love of narrow-gauge stock. 

The railway held their delayed enthusiasts day recently, under social distancing rules. ensuring that hand hygiene and use of face masks indoors and on trains was adhered to. The event should have been held in March but like many events was cancelled because of the coronavirus. 

To reduce numbers the normal one day event was held over two days. Ken Jones attended the event and sent pictures. Star attraction for many visitors, will have been the first time they've seen the Garratt in service.
