STATFOLD BARN RAILWAY


ROAD, RAIL & ALE


Sunday 11 September 2022


A return visit to this lovely private railway, we last visited in 2019 and everyone had a fantastic day out with lots to see, do and participate in for all ages.

They are running an extensive timetable during this weekend along with visiting tractions engines and the Ale festival. boot.

The Statfold Barn Railway is an extensive two-foot gauge private railway near Tamworth in Staffordshire, England. They are home to one of the largest collections of narrow-gauge historic steam, diesel, and electric locomotives from the UK and overseas.

The Museum is managed by a trust and extensive work has been done to enhance, educate and hopefully enthral the visitor even more than on previous visits. A mezzanine floor has been installed enabling static displays of engines, not refurbished but in the state in which they arrived at Statfold.

The central courtyard area is the starting point for any visit to the Statfold Barn Railway. In addition to the canopied platform of the original SBR terminus station the most prominent features are the triple gauge turntable and traverser, both of which were designed and built in-house at Statfold Works.


The turntable is capable of handling locomotives of up to fifty tons in weight and, in addition to enabling them to be turned, provides an access route for locomotives and rolling stock arriving at Statfold by low loader. The traverser gives onward access to a quadruple road storage shed in which locomotives are kept when not in use. The traditional railway-style frontage of the storage shed disguises the fact that it was originally a farm barn.


Further information  and timetables will be available on the day of visit.
