About the Event

The Midlands Area Council invites members and families to our family day to the Statfold Barn Railway.

Our Family Day is a great day out and gives the opportunity for partners and children of members to enjoy a great day out with fellow members.

You’ll see more working steam locomotives in one hour than anywhere else in the UK, as the Statfold Barn Railway and Museum has one of the largest collections of rare, unique and historic locomotives from around the world, and much more…

  • The only narrow-gauge Roundhouse in the UK
  • Double track mainline where you can experience parallel running and trains passing each other
  • Dedicated photography areas at various points of the railway
  • Fierce gradients and tight corners
  • Coaches with balcony ends so you can immerse yourself in steam
  • Freight trains throughout the day
  • Watch the locomotives being turned on the turntable at Statfold Junction

Due to the popularity of last year’s family event places have been increased to 50 for this visit. So register as soon as possible, as places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
