TDCS visit to Statfold Barn Farm Steam Railway -  16th July 2016


For our private V.I.P. tour of Statfold Barn Farm Steam Railway -  one of the wonders of Tamworth and District - we had 126 members and friends of all ages queuing up to join us.  We toured the workshops, yards and museums, were welcomed to an attractive and pristine railway station, had joyous steam train journeys, and picnicked surrounded by vintage machinery.  A fantastic event.  A fabulous place.  A huge thank you to the owners for making TDCS so welcome, and many congratulations to them and all their volunteer helpers who have lovingly built and maintained this railway paradise.
