The Family Enthusiasts day is an opportunity for all keen Narrow Gauge Railway Photographers and Railway minded people to take a ‘behind the scenes’ look at the Statfold Barn Railway and the way it works. Various Statfold engines providing a regular train service from the main Station, Statfold Junction through to Oaktree Halt , around the loop and back through Oaktree to the Junction. The passenger can alight at Oaktree to visit the Narrow gauge Trust Museum to ‘take in’ not only the Static displays of locomotives but view the Round House , where the days non-working loco’s are on view, but also to see various Railway artefacts. The visitor can see and ride on the renovated Burton and Ashby Tram which runs from its own dedicated Tram Shed down to Oaktree and back.
