2017 Enthusiasts' Days
Our 2017 Enthusiasts' Days will be on Saturdays 25th March, 10th June and 9th September. The invitation request form is available to download here.
We are pleased to announce that we have been able to lower the age restriction for these events and can now welcome responsible enthusiasts aged from 10 upwards.
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. Catering is available.
There is ample car parking space at Statfold Barn just off the B5493 while for those using public transport the nearest railway station is Tamworth from where taxis are available (approx. £10 one way). Alternatively 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.
