2018 Enthusiasts' Days

The dates for our 2018 Enthusiasts' Days follow the usual pattern and will be on Saturdays 24th March, 9th June and 8th September. The invitation request form will be available to download here soon.

In addition the popular Miniature Traction Engine weekend will be held on 12th and 13th May, and there will be a Family Day on 7th July. More details of these events will also be available soon.

At each event passenger trains will start running at around 9.30am and operate frequently throughout the day until about 3.30pm when the service starts to wind down to release all the locomotives in steam to be gathered for a cavalcade and massed sounding of whistles at around 4.30pm. The Roundhouse museum is open for viewing throughout the day and there are also model railway layouts, historic road vehicles and sales stands. A range of catering is available.

Statfold Barn Farm is located just off the B5493 between Tamworth and Junction 11 of the M42 at No Mans Heath. There is ample car parking space while for those using public transport the nearest railway station is Tamworth from where taxis are available (approx. £10 one way). Alternatively the hourly Solus Local Bus villages circular route 82 from Tamworth Corporation Street (£3 single) passes close to the entrance.

Please note that, for the safety and comfort of all our visitors, attendance is strictly by pre-requested invitation only and that it is NOT possible to pay on the gate.
