Statfold Barn Railway – Giant Miniature Weekend – May 12th/13th 2018 The award winning Statfold Barn Railway proudly presents its “Giant Miniature Weekend”, featuring 100 or more miniature traction engines and steam lorries in steam! Joining us from across the country will be a wide variety of steam engines in 1.5″ – 9″ scale as well as many related displays. The impressive narrow gauge railway will have at least 5 of its immaculate engines in steam and hauling passenger trains and there will also be the opportunity to leave the train at Oak Tree Halt and visit the wonderful “Roundhouse Museum”. Statfold is a usually private steam railway and this is the only event in the year where the whole family can come along and enjoy this lovely venue. This event has grown to become one of the largest gatherings of miniature road steam in the country and we are proud to play host to such a wide variety of engines and exhibits! As well as the narrow gauge steam trains and many, many miniature steamers there will be some full size traction engines, a miniature working area, children’s activities such as a bouncy castle, colour in’s and much more.
