Statfold Barn Railway

Statfold Barn Farm, located close to Tamworth in Staffordshire, is the home to the Statfold Barn Railway which, under the guidance of owners Graham & Carol Lee over the last fifteen years, has grown to become what must be the most significant collection of narrow gauge locomotives in the UK.  With over 30 steam locomotives and many internal combustion locomotives, representing most British and several overseas manufacturers.

With the recent establishment of the Statfold Narrow Gauge Trust the future of this unique collection is ensured beyond the lifetime of its owners.
As well as our public open & enthusiast days, Statfold also offer Driver Experience Days, educational tours & special events including Santa Express Trains, Halloween Steam & Scream and much more..!

The site has recently undergone further development and is proud to introduce the new gift shop, diner & the Statfold Roundhouse wedding, conference & events venue.

There is plenty to see and do here for all ages and we host many events throughout the year so that people can come and enjoy the ‘Statfold Experience’, so why not come along.... Click here for more information
